The first large-scale collaboration between the Musée d’Orsay and the Musée national Picasso-Paris is dedicated to Pablo Picasso’s blue and rose periods. Featuring a number of key works, including paintings, drawings, sculptures and engravings, this exhibition intends to propose a revised interpretation of the years 1900–06 – a critical period in Picasso’s career which to date has not been covered in its entirety by a French museum. This overview of a crucial period attempts to reconsider the significance of Picasso’s early career and the effect that this transitional moment between the 19th and 20th centuries had on his subsequent work. Find out more about the Picasso exhibition from the Musée d’Orsay website.
