Maya Ruiz-Picasso, fille de Pablo

Through December 31, 2022
Musée national Picasso–Paris
www.museepicassoparis.fr

Pablo Picasso’s first daughter, María de la Concepción, known as Maya, was born on September 5, 1935. As a child she was a constant subject of her father’s drawings and paintings, especially between January 1938 and October 1939, a period in which he painted fourteen portraits of her. This exhibition, curated by Diana Widmaier-Ruiz-Picasso and Emilia Philippot, brings together a significant ensemble of Picasso’s portraits of Maya, reexamining his career through the prism of the close bond between father and daughter, and showing how Maya’s presence nourished and amplified the artist’s fascination with childhood.

Beaux-Arts de Paris
www.beauxartsparis.fr

This exhibition, whose title translates to Outside the Walls Scribbling and Doodling: From Leonardo da Vinci to Cy Twombly, includes nearly three hundred original works from the Renaissance to the present day and aims to shed light on these unconventional and often overlooked aspects of the practice of drawing. By exploring scribbling and doodling, from sketches scribbled on the backs of canvases to expansive doodles conceived as artworks in themselves, the show unveils how these experimental, transgressive, regressive, or liberating mark-making gestures, which appear to flout all laws and conventions, have punctuated the history of artistic creation. This exhibition traveled from the Villa Medici–Académie de France à Rome. Work by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Pablo Picasso, and Cy Twombly is included.

Organized as part of a five-year partnership with the Centre Pompidou, Paris, this exhibition brings together emblematic artworks from the Centre Pompidou’s collection, ranging from the early twentieth-century avant-garde to contemporary works that question our globalized world.
