PICASSO – PICABIA, the exhibition that ultimately produced me aspire a stop by to Aix-en-Provence. As element of the Picasso Méditerranée wandering exhibition, I ultimately wanted to see many functions of Picasso. The addition of the functions by Francis Picabia just enhanced my want to see this exhibition, prior to it moves additional. Study on to come across out in which yet another European city the paintings are displayed subsequent.
The initial exhibition to evaluate their function, Picasso-Picabia provides an insight into an artistic tandem unprecedented in the history of 20th-century painting. Exploring fifty years of wealthy, diverse and uninterrupted artistic production, it characteristics each masterpieces and from time to time lesser-recognized functions by these two artists of Spanish heritage. Presented in an 800 sq.m. short-term exhibition space, some 110 functions by these two artists echo but also sometimes clash and combine with every single other.
This history of painting, strewn with conflict and rivalry, but also unsettling similarities shed light on the founding pictorial practices and movements of Modernity: Cubism and Orphism, Dada machines and Ingresque Classicism, the mid-1920s “monster Surrealism” in the South of France, portraits of girls in the 1930s, and the crucial part played by photography in their function.
Enjoying the identical artistic freedom, Picasso could properly have mentioned – as Picabia did of himself – that he was an “artist in all genres”, and each guys changed the face of painting in the 20th century.
