Art Knowledge News - Posted: 22 May 2012
Austria -Kunst Haus Wien presents Picasso – Myths, Fables and Models, on view
through July 5, 2009. With 120 graphic works by Pablo Picasso, taken from five
creative periods spanning approximately a decade each, the exhibition leads
us into Picasso’s universe of motifs and obsessions. We encounter fabulous
creatures from Greek mythology, such as the Minotaur or the centaurs, as well
as the bullfight theme and several of Picasso’s favourite models. The
exhibition, conceived especially for Kunst Haus Wien, presents works selected
from the extensive collections of the Graphikmuseum Pablo Picasso Münster and
offers unique insights into Picasso’s methods.
