Picasso and War
Musée de l'Armée
Picasso’s works and personal archives, in all their diversity, will be shown alongside a selection of contextual items and documents (press articles, photographs and objects) evoking the reality and spread of the conflicts that influenced his work. The exhibition will explore the various ways that warfare informed and impacted Picasso’s creative output throughout his career. A life-size replica of the most emblematic of all his works, Guernica, opens the exhibition visit and stands as a tipping point marking Picasso’s first public political statement.
