From October 14th 2011 to January 29th 2012 Pisa will host an exhitition of works by Pablo Picasso.
‘Ho voluto essere pittore e sono diventato Picasso’ - ‘I wanted to become a painter and I became Picasso’ is the title of this major retrospective.
After the happy dreams of Marc Chagall, which have taken shape in the light of the south of France, after the poem by Joan Miro tied to his land this year is the turn of Pablo Picasso, absolute genius of the twentieth century, whose creative fury, born in Barcelona, marked the twentieth century.
The exhibition features more than 200 works, the highlight of which is probably a series of Linocut pieces from the Picasso Museum in Barcelona. These form the core of the exhibition, around which are wrapped creations dating from 1901 through to 1970 … paintings, ceramics, sketches and designs, lithographs, watercolours, books and tapestries.
