Picasso Prints at the Juan March Foundation in Palma
The exhibition 'Picasso Prints. The Suite Vollard: In the Manner of Rembrandt' demonstrates Picasso's interest in the Old Masters, particularly in the figure of Rembrandt, to whom Picasso turned on multiple occasions. In these prints Picasso converts the celebrated seventeenth-century painter and engraver into a character, reinterpreting the singular style of the Dutch master and setting him against the classicism that he himself practiced. This gallery is dedicated to the rotating exhibition of Picasso's graphic work belonging to the permanent collection deposited in the Museu Fundación Juan March.
Pablo Picasso (Málaga, 1881 – Mougins, 1973) always gave enormous import to the art of printmaking. Although he utilized the technique throughout his life, during the 1930s he completed various series of etchings, considered since then to be among the most important in the history of the medium.
This exhibition could be visited for free until the upcoming Saturday 26th of October at the Juan March Foundation in Palma de Mallorca.
