Picasso & Abstraction
(Re)discover more than 120 of Picasso's masterpieces and their relationship to abstract art
• Accompanies the exhibition Picasso & Abstraction from 14 October 2022 until 12 February 2023 at the Royal Museums of Fine Art of Brussels
• Created in collaboration with the Picasso Museum and the Picasso Foundation
This catalog for a show at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts, Brussels, brings Picasso's relationship to abstraction into focus. With more than 120 exceptional works of art in dialogue with some of the great works of the early 20th century abstraction movement, it addresses the major stages that punctuated the links between Picasso's work and the history of abstract art. It covers the period from the first Cubist experiments of 1907, carried out simultaneously with ‘Les Demoiselles d'Avignon’, to his later work, which is sometimes situated on the borders of gestural painting.
