Fundacion Juan March opens La Minotauromachie (1935) Picasso in his Labyrinth exhibition
Fundacion Juan March presents La Minotauromachie (1935) Picasso in his Labyrinth a small scale exhibition on view July 17, 2013 – August 31, 2013, centered upon La Minotauromachie [Minotauromachy] (1935), a principal work of the graphic production of Pablo Picasso, which belongs to the permanent collection of the Fundación Juan March.
La Minotauromachie, exhibited in the Madrid headquarters of the Fundación for the first time after having taken part in different exhibitions in the museums in Palma and Cuenca, will be joined by 15 prints from the Suite Vollard dedicated to the figure of the Minotaur, in addition to all issues of the Surrealist journal Minotaure (1933-1939), as well as books, photographs and diverse documentation.
Pablo Picasso (Málaga, 1881-Mougins, 1973) completed numerous prints during his artistic trajectory, constituting a fundamental portion of his oeuvre. As in his paintings, and as a result of his intense creative process, Picasso worked in series, repeating preferred themes and processes. With his tireless capacity for experimentation and absolute domination of all graphic techniques, Picasso is considered one of the most extraordinary printmakers of all time, with a body of work comparable in quality and scope to those of Rembrandt and Goya. www.march.es
