Art & design—The exhibition brings together a large portion of his work, normally scattered worldwide as well as showcases contemporary art inspired by Picasso’s very own Les Femmes d’Alger.
In 1954 began one of the most prolific periods of Picasso’s art – in three months he produced 15 oil paintings and more than a hundred sketches and prints. Inspired by Eugene Delacroix’s Women of Algiers (1834 and 1849) and using the same thematics but his own expression he created paintings distorting the female shape, saturating them with colour, or returning to his cubist comfort zone and desaturating with grey shades. The special exhibition by the Nationalgalerie of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin showcases Picasso’s alternative perspective on painting and his uniqueness in artistic variation.
