Engravings and Ceramics from the House of His Birth
“I was born of a father of white and of a small glass of Andalusian water of life, I was born of a mother the daughter of a fifteen year-old daughter born in Málaga in Los Percheles the beautiful bull who engendered me his forehead wreathed in jasmine.”
Having hosted Pablo Picasso with his towering achievement in etching during the first half of the 20th century, Suite Vollard, in 2010, we have presented Engravings and Ceramics from the House of His Birth.
Pablo Ruíz Picasso, born in Málaga in 1881, in a house facing the Merced Square in the heart of a city that already had 2500 years of history, comes with the memories of a house full of sisters and aunts, with doves fluttering around the square where he played as a small child, and the smell of paint in the walls。
The selection, curated by Mario Virgilio Montañez Arroyo, offered us examples of the stylistic transitions of an artist who has made his mark on visual formats ever since the last century, is a reflection of his world; his constant and never-ending search. Engravings from the Picasso Foundation, Birthplace Museum’s Collection were exhibited to create a full panorama of the models, techniques, and styles of the artist between 1923 and 1969, half a century of changing creation during which he combines and switches between Classicism, Cubism, and Surrealism.
Traditional themes were questioned in six sections, which reflected and bore witness to Picasso’s incessant search, his defense of the freedom and independence of the artist, which made him the 20th century’s greatest artist. Engravings and ceramics, extending from realistic depictions of certain subjects to their Cubist and Surrealist interpretations, were accompanied by his personal elements of Picasso’s belongings when he was a child.
