From October 7, 2015 until February 29, 2016, the Grand Palais will be paying tribute to the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso through the major exhibition, Picasso Mania.
Around 100 masterpieces by Picasso will be put together on the exhibition meant to act like a retrospective of Picasso's legacy in contemporary art.
The Picasso Mania is in fact devoted to the artistic heritage of the great artist of the twentieth century, Pablo Picasso (1881-1973). It traces on a chronological and thematic basis the traces about the different moments of the critical and artistic reception of the work of Picasso, the steps of the formation of the myth associated with his name. To major stylistic phases, some emblematic works of Pablo Picasso, such as Les Demoiselles d'Avignon and Guernica, meet contemporary works by Hockney, Johns, Lichtenstein, Kippenberger, Warhol, Basquiat or Jeff Koons.
The exhibition looks back at a fruitful confrontation that contemporary artists have conducted since the 1960s, with the work of Picasso, where one hundred masterpieces by Picasso, including some works exhibited for the first time, face the greatest masters of contemporary art, David Hockney, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat , Jeff Koons, David Hockney and Paul McCarthy.
To sum up, 78 artists and 309 masterpieces dating from the 1960s to nowadays, the various techniques and various media (paintings, sculptures, videos, comics…) will be presented through the Picasso Mania exhibition at the Grand Palais. Save the date, this major artistic event will be running until the 29th of February 2016, do not miss it!
