Picasso's Studios

Date: July 1 to November 1

Ticket: Tickets must be purchased online in advance of your visit. 

Picasso’s Studios exhibition is taking place at the Fire Station, Gallery Garage from July 1, 2020, to November 1, 2020.

Picasso’s Studios, organized in partnership with the Musée national Picasso-Paris, looks at the intimate examination of Pablo Picasso’s places of creation throughout his life, from his arrival in Paris around 1900 as a young artist to his last stay in the South of France, in the city of Mougins.

Picasso occupied many studios over the course of his storied career, and they bear a close connection to his development of iconic movements in Modern art history.

From the exceptional collections of the Musée national Picasso-Paris the objects on view range from landmark paintings to sculpture, drawings, engravings, and ceramic works. They are the works that Picasso kept in his studios, the works from which he did not want to be separated from.
