Gift of Pablo Picasso, 1970
Museu Picasso, Barcelona
Louisiana on Paper Picasso before Picasso
The exhibition Louisiana on Paper – Picasso before Picasso features 28 of Picasso’s earliest works, all in the collections at Museu Picasso in Barcelona, where some of the few drawings extant from the very earliest period are still preserved.
The exhibition shows the birth of the genius through a number of examples that contain the seed of the Picasso who left his mark on most of art history in the first half of the twentieth century.
