About

Everything you can imagine is real.
—Pablo Picasso

Gagosian is pleased to present selected works by Pablo Picasso.

One of the most influential artists of the twentieth century, Picasso produced an oeuvre encompassing nearly twenty thousand artworks, transcending all attempts at categorization. On view are works in various mediums, which span the breadth of his diverse and prolific output.

With a maverick ability to expand the vocabulary of modern aesthetics, Picasso ushered in a new era in art by including nontraditional influences while legitimizing new media. On view are paintings, drawings, and terra-cotta sculptures that attest to the enduring appeal of his restless virtuosity. Paintings such as Le Petit Picador (1889), Nature morte à la guitar (1924), Marie-Thérèse a la Guirlande (1937), Femme endormie, symphonie en gris (1943), and Portrait d’enfant: Paloma (1952) are exhibited alongside robust ceramics such as Centaure (recto) Feuillage (verso) (1952) and Scène tauromachique (1952), as well as ink drawings such as Enfant jouant au train (1ère partie et 2ème partie) (1950) and Le Laboureur céleste (1950).

This exhibition will coincide with Picasso at Work: Through the Lens of David Douglas Duncan—an exhibition celebrating the historic friendship between the American photographer and the artist—which is on view at the Musées d’Art et d’Histoire, Geneva, from October 30 through February 3, 2013.

Everything you can imagine is real.

Gagosian est heureuse de présenter une sélection d’œuvres de Pablo Picasso.

Picasso est l’un des artistes les plus influent du XXème siècle. Son œuvre, comprenant presque vingt mille pièces, transcende toute tentative de catégorisation.

La volonté anticonformiste de Picasso d’inclure des influences non-traditionnelles et des nouveaux médias dans son œuvre, a permis d’étendre le vocabulaire de l’esthétique moderne vers une ère nouvelle. L’exposition présente peintures, dessins, et sculptures en terre cuite qui témoigne de l’attrait intarissable pour sa virtuosité expansive. Des peintures telles que Le Petit Picador (1889), Nature morte à la guitare (1924), Marie-Thérèse à la Guirlande (1937), Femme endormie, symphonie en gris (1943), et Portrait d’enfant: Paloma (1952) sont exposées aux côtés de céramiques robustes telles que Centaure (recto) Feuillage (verso) (1952) et Scène tauromachique (1952), également des dessins à l’encre tels que Enfant jouant au train (1ère partie et 2ème partie) (1950) et Le Laboureur céleste (1950).

Cette exposition coïncide avec Picasso à l’œuvre: Dans l’objectif de David Douglas Duncan, une exposition célébrant l’amitié historique entre le photographe américain et l’artiste. Picasso à l’œuvre a lieu au Musée d’art et d’histoire de Genève du 30 Octobre au 3 Février 2013.
