Picasso exhibition at the Paris Charles-de-Gaulle airport
In partnership with the Picasso museum in Paris, the Espace Musées of the Paris Charles-de-Gaulle airport produces an exhibition of works, created after the second world war, when Picasso took up residence on the Côte d'Azur.
"Each time I stay in Antibes, I am pervaded by antiquity" told Picasso in confidence to his museum curator. Genial artist, Picasso practiced collaborative ceramic with the craftsmen of the Madoura pottery studio, from 1948; his work will significantly influence the trends from the 50s, by transforming the ancient ceramic know-how into an art form.
Furthermore the goat, which was a compulsive source of inspiration for him, he drew imagination from eclectic subjects like antiquity, mythological animals, Greek heroes and gods, the golden age and the ancient bacchanalia at the end of the exhibition, with a diversity of influences from the Tiziano's Vénus with the musicians or the Manet's Luncheon on the Grass: potteries, painted metal plate, oil paintings, pastel and fusain on plywood, drawings on wove paper or wash on zinc, nothing can stop his powerful creativity, flooded with light and stimulated by the sun of the French Riviera.
