Discover “Chefs-d’oeuvre” au Musée Picasso

We know the case of Vermeer, who, punctilious, has left barely forty paintings for posterity. Picasso’s legacy was less meager: his listed works are counted in tens of thousands! Between engraving, ceramics, drawing, sculpture and painting, the man with the smock rarely twiddled his thumbs – his insane productivity would make Balzac and Victor Hugo appear like common idlers. This has its advantages (there is something for everyone) and its disadvantages (Can one remember?).

The Paris Picasso Museum tried answering this question by organizing the exhibition Masterpieces! By confining itself to a few masterpieces, retracing the history of their creation and their critical reception, it draws from Picasso’s art its very substance. So as not to get lost in the labyrinthine quarry of the Minotaur!
