The National Museum in Warsaw exhibit works by Pablo Picasso, on loan from the Museo Casa Natal Picasso (Picasso’s Birthplace Museum) in Málaga. The exhibition will feature engravings, book illustrations and ceramics created over several decades. Dazzling with their diversity of style, colour and emotion, the selected works tell the story of Picasso’s artistic evolution.
The exhibition is organized to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of Picasso’s death and to celebrate Spain’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the second half of this year.
The works will be displayed in four sections. The first one will outline Picasso’s reflections on beauty. The second one will focus on the artist’s fascination with mythological creatures, especially the figures of fauns and centaurs (which can be treated as his alter egos). The third will present a wide selection of ceramic works which attest to Picasso’s ingenuity and passion. The final section will be dedicated to the Polonica found in the artist’s oeuvre and will primarily include pieces from the National Museum’s own Picasso collection, many of which were gifted to the Museum by the artist himself.
