VERNISSAGE OF THE EXHIBITION OF PABLO PICASSO'S “PASSION. BLOOD. WINE. THE WOMAN” IS ATTENDED BY OVER 400 GUESTS
"Picasso is the main artist of the 20th century. «And it is a special honor for us to open the exhibition of the artist in Altmans Gallery today,» - said Egor Altman, founder and co-owner of Altmans Gallery" at the opening.
Picasso, despite the fact that he lived part of his life in France, was a native Spaniard and can rightly be considered as a Spanish artist. Spanish Ambassador to Russia Ignacio Ibáñez, who attended the opening of the exhibition, stressed the special importance of Pablo Picasso's exhibition in Russia: "The exhibition at Altmans Gallery is of great importance for strengthening the dialogue between Spain and Russia. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations between our countries, but there is another important anniversary. One of the most famous paintings by Picasso - "Guernica" - dedicated to the bombing of the Spanish city of the same name, after this tragedy, a number of countries (including the Soviet Union) decided to host children from warring Spain. And this year marks the 80th anniversary of the arrival of "Spanish children" in the USSR, and it is very important that this year in Russia will be able to see previously exhibited works by Picasso."
