Picasso 1906

Nov 15, 2023 — Mar 4, 2024 | Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid, Spain

Museo Reina Sofía, with the exceptional support of the Musée Picasso Paris, has organized Picasso 1906. The Great Transformation, which closes the official commemorative program of international exhibitions and suggests a major revision of criteria on the key role played by the artist in the creation of modern art. 

The great contribution of Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) to this landmark development is generally considered to be the painting of Les Demoiselles d’Avignon in 1907. However, that work can now be regarded as a point of arrival, the final outburst of a whole complex process that had developed throughout 1906 and up to late February or early March, 1907. During that period, the artist’s creative activity took place in three settings: Paris, Gósol (a Pyrenean village in the province of Lérida), and Paris again.
