The exhibition at the National Gallery of Modern Art, curated by Fernando Castro Flórez, celebrates Pablo Picasso on the 50th anniversary of his death and 70 years after the great 1953 exhibition in Italy.
A selection of 300 works including drawings and engravings from the Casa Natal Picasso Museum in Malaga is exhibited in the rooms of the Gallery. These are works created in different periods of his activity, ranging from 1905 to 1972, offering thus a complete review of the great master's imagination and also allowing the rediscovery of works of exceptional interest.
In fact, Picasso's graphic work is of enormous importance within his entire artistic production; from the Vollard Suite series to the engravings made at the end of his life, it is a real cycle in which the painter revisits all of his artistic imagery, from the central theme of the "painter and the model" to the reconsideration of the history of art (in a re-proposition, from a personal perspective, of the influences of Raphael, Rembrandt, Velázquez, Degas or Manet), introducing humorous elements which sometimes slip into the grotesque.
