They loved and influenced each other, fell out and made up again. The exhibition Les Louvre de Pablo Picasso tells the story of an encounter between two titans: on the one hand, one of the most famous artists of all time, and on the other, one of the greatest museums in the world. Picasso and the Louvre, the Louvre and Picasso – this tumultuous relationship, which has lasted for more than a century, has marked the histories of the artist and of the museum. Featuring a double itinerary, with more than 450 works and documents, mixing paintings, sculptures, ceramics, drawings, engravings, photographs and archives, the exhibition looks at this unusual story. It offers a new perspective on Picasso, the man and the artist, as well as on the Louvre.
