Picasso Bleu et Rose exhibition at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris

Paris hosts 2 major exhibitions dedicated to Picasso. In addition to the exhibition
"Picasso Bleu et Rose" at the Musée d'Orsay, which presents the works of his youth, the museum
Picasso
gathers the masterpieces of Picasso on the occasion of his exhibition entitled "Picasso, Masterpieces!". These 2 exhibitions are
naturally complementary and are both very suitable for young audiencesespecially since they
organize family visits and workshops especially for children.

The exhibition "Picasso Bleu et Rose" presents works from the years 1900-1906, known as
blue and then pink period. This is an essential moment in Picasso's career.
In 1900, Picasso
was 19 years old and began to break away from academic painting. The blue period is characterized by
emaciated characters, of a great sadness. "It was with Casagemas in mind that I began to
to paint in blue "
said Picasso. Casagemas was a close friend of Picasso's who shot himself in the head for a matter of the heart. The blue period is followed by the pink period, which is more peaceful with portraits of acrobats. The exhibition Picasso Bleu et Rose presents about
300 works: paintings, drawings and also Picasso's sculpted and engraved production during these
years.
