Picasso Picabia, Painting Defied

from 9 June to 23 September 2018

The Musée Granet, a cultural landmark in the City of Aix-en-Provence, is playing host from 9 June to 23 September 2018 to one of the highlights on this summer’s artistic calendar: “Picasso Picabia – Painting Defied”.

This exhibition is part of the “Picasso Mediterranean 2017-2019” season launched by the Musée National Picasso, Paris. An unprecedented opportunity to compare and contrast works by two of the greatest names in modern art, founders of the most important artistic movements of the 20th century, it features key works from the museum’s collections. This highly original show will also feature many exceptional loans from private owners and leading French and international museums and galleries in France.
