More than 100 original works by Pablo Picasso are exhibited at the remarkable Site Oud Sint-Jan congress centre, in the heart of the old quarters of Bruges.
Composed of engravings, lithographs and rare original illustrations, the route through the exhibition also reveals ceramics and drawings by the most famous artist of the 20th century and his entourage. His works are accompanied by creations by Dora Maar or Françoise Gilot, two famous partners of the master.
In a set design specially made for the event, the exhibition covers in turn the beginnings of Picasso, the Spanish tradition, cubism, the African influence, surrealism, ceramics, portrait art, simplicity and his commitment to peace. The route also unveils works by other famous artists who were peers of Pablo Picasso, such Henri Matisse, Joan Miro or Georges Braque.
