'Olhar Picasso' - Picasso and 20th century Portuguese Art at Galeria Arade, Portimão

Only a few days left to see this amazing exhibition that includes 19 original paintings, ceramics, lithographs and drawings from one of the founders of Cubism as well as some photographs that capture special intimate moments of the artist: Picasso.

There are also some 100 exhibits of art works by portuguese artists influenced by the art of Picasso: Almada Negreiros, Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso, Santa-Rita Pintor, Júlio Pomar, Júlio Resende e Mário Cesariny.

Born in Málaga, Spain, in 1881, Pablo Picasso lived until the age of 92. Part of his life has been captured by the photographer Lee Miller (wife of Roland Penrose, Picasso’s biographer), whose exhibits you can see for the first time in Portugal with photos taken of Picasso between 1936 and 1970. These photos have been shown recently at the Picasso Museum in Barcelona.

Links & Notes:

'Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Martyr Patricio Clito Ruíz y Picasso (October 25, 1881 – April 8, 1973) was an Andalusian-Spanish painter, draughtsman, and sculptor. As one of the most recognized figures in twentieth-century art, he is best known for co-founding the Cubist movement and for the wide variety of styles embodied in his work. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907) and his depiction of the German bombing of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War, Guernica (1937)'. (Wikipedia)
