Picasso The work of the great Spanish artist should not be over-exposed

Stop making an exhibition of Picasso, says son Claude
Picasso is all over France this summer. One exhibition in Nîmes, in the south of the country, features his paintings of bulls. Another, an hour’s drive away in Montpellier, shows works marking the key stages in his life. A third, at Paris Opéra, focuses on his relationship with ballet.

Other countries are getting in on the act, too. In London, Tate Modern is holding an exhibition of works and photographs that offer “rare glimpses into his personal life”. Barcelona’s Picasso Museum is displaying 180 of his paintings, prints, sculptures and drawings of food and kitchens.

Peak Picasso
The work of the great Spanish artist should not be over-exposed
Picasso is everywhere this year. To see an exhibition of his bulls, head 
to Nimes. 
For his dancers, go to Paris. For his depictions of food, go to Barcelona, 
and to see 100 of his works from 1932 alone, pay a visit Tate Modern. 
There are another 19 Picasso exhibitions this year in France and many more 
across Europe. It is, frankly, an overdose, and even the artist’s son, 
Claude Picasso, has admitted as much. 
"Among the exhibitions,"he said,"there is a load that are not necessary"...

Picasso and Dance
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) was without a doubt one of the most versatile 

artists of the 20th century - a painter, draftsman, sculptor and engraver, 
he never stopped investigating a wide range of techniques, exploring the 
most diverse fields and forms of expression. In the 1910s, he discovered 
the world of show business and started working on the creation of sets and costumes that would mark the history of ballet. Parade (1917), 
The Three-Cornered Hat (1919), Pulcinella (1920) and Mercure (1924) are 
all major landmark works for this art. 
Picasso's legacy remains alive in the Ballet repertoire of the Paris Opera, 
which demonstrates how important a role he played in the choreographic landscape of the time.
However, looking beyond the world of ballet, we can see that Picasso expressed an interest in dance from a young age. From the circus dancers of the 1900s, 

to the bacchanal scenes of the 1940s to 1960s, to the erotic dances of Picasso’s later work, everything seemed to be a pretext to depicting bodies in movement. The dynamics of the danced movement thus featured in all of the master’s work, sometimes going so far as to in fact fuel his artistic expression.
The exhibition held by the Bibliothèque nationale de France and the Paris National Opera explores the different aspects of Picasso's relationship with dance, from company life and creative research, to fine arts and performing arts.


1932 was an intensely creative period in the life of the 20th century’s most influential artist.

The myths around Picasso are stripped away to reveal the man and the artist in his full complexity and richness. You will see him as never before.
‘I paint the way some people write an autobiography. The paintings, finished or not, 
are the pages from my diary.’ Pablo Picasso...[...]

...το ότι τα έργα του Πικάσο βρίσκονται παντού δεν συμβάλλει στην 
ανάδειξη τού μεγαλείου του, αλλά στον περιορισμό του. 
Η οικειότητα τροφοδοτεί την αδιαφορία, αν όχι την περιφρόνηση. 
Τα έργα του Πικάσο θα πρέπει να μας συγκλονίζουν γιατί κανένας άλλος 
δεν παραμόρφωσε και ερωτικοποίησε περισσότερο από εκείνον εικόνες 
της καθημερινής ζωής.
...η τέχνη είναι για λίγους έλεγε ο Πικάσο, όταν ασχολούνται πολλοί γίνεται ακαδημαϊκή...
Μέσω της ατέρμονης φθοράς, οι ακανόνιστες άκρες του έργου του έχουν στρογγυλοποιηθεί. Με τόσα πολλά ελάσσονος σημασίας έργα του 
στριμωγμένα σε εκθέσεις ώστε να γεμίσει ο χώρος, ο Πικάσο παρουσιάζεται 
ως ένας ζωγράφος μουτζούρων και ορνιθοσκαλισμάτων» και όχι αριστουργημάτων όπως η Guernica

 Η Γκερνίκα (Guernica στα ισπανικά ή Γκουέρνικα, με λατινική απόδοση στα ελληνικά), 
είναι το διασημότερο ίσως έργο του Πάμπλο Πικάσο

Για να αποκαταστήσουν το όνομα του Πικάσο, οι επιμελητές εκθέσεων 
και οι ιστορικοί της τέχνης θα πρέπει να εφαρμόσουν στην πράξη μια 
δική του φράση: «η τέχνη είναι η απαλοιφή του περιττού»
...μόνον στη Γαλλία τη φετινή χρονιά υπάρχουν περισσότερες από 
20 εκθέσεις αφιερωμένες στον κατεξοχήν ισπανό ζωγράφο της 
σύγχρονης εποχής...
