Press release

A dancer with the Ballets Russes before becoming Picasso’s wife, Olga Khokhlova also loved to do embroidery. This was a crucial element for Francesco Vezzoli who, from the beginning, has devoted himself to the lives of women icons who expressed their suffering through the solipsistic practice of embroidery. The tears which the artist has been embroidering obsessively on these faces over the past 15 years represent the other side of glamour.


Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, all galeries are temporarily closed to the public, but remain accessible by appointment.
