The relation between Picasso and the circus, at the Picasso Museum Barcelona
Posted by edux127 on November 22, 2006
“Picasso i el circ” is on how Picasso dealt with the world of the circus during his long artistic career. There are around 300 items in the exhibition – paintings, sculptures, drawings, etchings, ceramics and photos – from museums and private collections around the world.Picasso had links with the circus throughout his life. In Barcelona at the end of the 19th century, Picasso always used to go to the circus visiting the city, even though his work at this time has no reference to the circus. From 1901, when he was first in the city, the young Picasso, along with his friends, often visited the travelling circuses along the boulevards in Paris.The exhibition is organised by the Picasso Museum in Barcelona and the Pierre Gianadda Foundation in Martigny, with the collaboration of the Spanish society for cultural commemoration, the SECC, part of the Ministry of Culture.
