ABOUT THE EVENT
Exhibition of graphic works and ceramics "The Mystery of Picasso" by Pablo Picasso will open its doors at the Altmans Gallery, Tel Aviv, on March 8, 2018. The exhibition combines unique graphic works from the private collections, previously not available to the public, and the works from the Altmans Gallery's collection. The exhibition will feature works from the series such as the "Cocteau", the "Vollard Suite", the "Lysistrata", the "Bulls and Toreadors" and one of the portraits of Jacqueline Rock, last wife of Picasso. This exhibition is also unusual in that most of the works presented are black and white (with the exception of ceramics and several etchings).
The exhibition at the Altmans Gallery TLV aims not to reveal the mystery, but to present it ... The general themes of 25 graphic works to be exhibited, starting from March, 1 at the Altmans Gallery TLV, are passion, desire, erotic ... Picasso was obsessed with women, bullfighting and his personality; it is a sufficient set for a creative person, in the presence of talent, to become a genius. Adding his sexual energy to this, and then comes the understanding of his magic and enchantment made just by laconic pencil lines on soft paper.
