An exhibition that has become an event of international importance: 170 works by Pablo Picasso, some of which had never been shown to the public, because they belong to Picasso's personal legacy.
Milan 1951- Milan 2001. At last, fifty years later, the Lombard city hosts a retrospective devoted to Pablo Picasso. This is one of the most important exhibition events of the new millennium, owing to the author’s fame and the unusual nature of the works displayed.
An essential figure of twentieth-century art, Picasso achieved great celebrity, not only in the artistic field where, starting with the themes and the style of Impressionism, he reached original achievements essential for the successive development of European art, but also on a political and cultural level, after the outbreak of the civil war in Spain.
The exhibition spans a large chronological period, from the Blue period to the end of Picasso’s artistic career, giving an exceptional completeness to the show; yet the most interesting aspect of the event is the fact that some of the 170 works displayed (including paintings, drawings, etchings, and sculptures) have never been sold nor shown to the public. An event of international importance that is bound to meet with an unprecedented attendance.
