Press release

Almine Rech and Fundación Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso para el Arte (FABA) are delighted to announce a momentous exhibition of French sculptor César celebrating the centenary of his birth, taking place in Picasso’s historic studio at Boisgeloup (Gisors, France).

In honor of the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of César (1921-1998), a selection of his works is on view at the Musée national Picasso-Paris and in Picasso’s studio in Boisgeloup. These works demonstrate César’s admiration for Picasso, and for his sculpture in particular: “It was fantastic and uncanny to see what he was able to do by disregarding classical form. 1” In the book accompanying the scholarly retrospective of his work held at the Centre Pompidou in 2017/2018, Bernard Blistène describes how César admired Picasso’s  “technique, his transformations, his sharp and revelatory sense of bricolage, his ‘material instinctʼ”. This two-fold personal exhibition at the Musée national Picasso-Paris and Boisgeloup develops connections between the two artists.
