On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Pablo Picasso’s death, the exhibition Picasso, 2023 drawings, organized by the Centre Pompidou, will highlight the most abundant part of his creation through the presentation of more than 2,000 drawings and prints. From the studies of his youth to his final works, for Picasso, drawing is the place of an ever-renewed invention around the powers of the line, from the serpentine line to the hatched drawing and proliferating compositions, from the delicate nuances of pastel to the deep blacks of ink. This journey through his graphic work, a sort of compulsive diary, of which the notebooks are the most precious examples, will offer an immersion into the heart of the artist’s work. The exhibition will highlight the extraordinary collection of the Musée national Picasso-Paris, including works from the artist’s studios and was kept by him until his death. The proposed exhibition is non-linear, shaking up the strict chronology, and will create echoes between different periods, and will compare recognized masterpieces with drawings presented for the first time. The largest retrospective of Picasso’s drawings and engravings ever organized, Picasso. 2023 drawings will plunge the visitor into the whirlwind of Picasso’s creation.
