As part of its "Art and Prehistory" cycle, the Museum of Man proposes a unique exhibition dedicated to Picasso and prehistory.
The exhibition brings together around 40 paintings, sculptures, drawings, ceramics and engraved pebbles by Pablo Picasso, which are presented in dialogue with prehistoric works and objects from his workshops, exploring Picasso's relationship with that distant past.
Like other of his contemporaries, Pablo Picasso is receptive to the discovery of these distant sources which touch on the origins of humanity and the myth of the first artist. Very early on, he came into possession of two casts of the Venus of Lespugue, discovered in 1922, the original of which is presented in the exhibition “Arts and prehistory”.
The exhibition is also part of the "Picasso Celebration 1973-2023”.
