Two titans, one art show, in the renovated Picasso museum in Le Marais district in Paris from October 4th to February 5th, 2017.
Lucky you are, traveling to Paris those months. The Musée Picasso and the Fondation Giacometti introduce for the first time, an exhibition dedicated to the some of the best artworks of two of the most important artists of the twentieth century: Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) and Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966).
Why set such an exhibition?
The two artists actually knew each other and worked together.
An important work of research, brought together from the collection of archives at the Musée Picasso and the Fondation Giacometti, has revealed new, significant documents, sketches, notebooks, and annotations. These documents clarify the unknown relationship between these two artists – a relationship both friendly and formal -, and the mutual interest that they shared during key moments of their careers, despite their twenty-year age difference.
Although each artist exhibits different personality traits, they are each characterized by a spirit of liberty and invention.
