Picasso and the comic strip

The Picasso and Comics exhibition: a surprising exhibition!

  • We thought we knew everything about Picasso! He was known for his paintings and cubism in particular, but... we find out, at the Picasso Museum...his surprising relationship with comic books.
  • "Picasso and the Comic Strip" is the first exhibition devoted to the links between the work of Pablo Picasso and the world of comics. We learn that Picasso was imbued with the 9th art, which he had discovered thanks to his friend Gertrude Stein.
  • Divided into 2 parts, the exhibition shows that Picasso loved comics, that he tried his hand at it and that he greatly influenced comic strip artists. 
  • The first rooms show the painter's passion for comics.  We discover his weekly readings with his friend and patron Gertrude Stein from Pim Pam Poum by Rudolph Dirks. We also learn that Picasso tried his hand at comics and that he produced at least two real comic books.
  • The second part of the exhibition presents Picasso's influence on comics. His influence is very great and the number of works exhibited is impressive proof of this. While admiring the plates ofHergéGotlib, Geluck, Spiegelman... and many others, we appreciate the diversity and impact that Picasso and his creations have had on the world.
  • In the end, a different exhibition of the more traditional ones, which should appeal to a young audience. While some may be disappointed by the lack of Picasso's paintings presented in this exhibition, they can still visit the museum's permanent collections after the exhibition.
