Exhibition «Anatomy of Cubism»
28.08.2018

The heart of this small exhibition, which demonstrates how the artist’s reflections evolved from the first timid drawings to an embodied idea, will be a book of early sketches for Pablo Picasso’s “Young Ladies of Avignon.” The Moscow exhibit will include 63 graphic works from this sketchbook, belonging to a collection from Picasso’s Birthplace Museum in Malaga.

The “Anatomy of Cubism” exhibition presented by the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts will give the Moscow audience its first opportunity to become acquainted with the story of a monumental work that changed the course of global art history.

In addition to the drawings from the Spanish museum, the exhibition shall comprise about 20 works from the collection of the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts. The opening painting of the exhibition is Paul Cézanne’s “Bathing.” Visitors will see rarely displayed masterpieces of ancient Egypt, antique ceramics, African statuettes, and, naturally, Picasso’s gouache paintings from Sergei Shchukin’s famous collection. This will offer a new perspective for viewing Pablo Picasso’s early works and grasping the creative origins of this Spanish avant-garde artist.
