Publié à l'occasion de l'exposition présentée par la Fondation Beyeler à Riehen, près de Bâle, du 3 février au 26 mai 2019.
Dans ce qui sera à ce jour sa plus prestigieuse exposition, la Fondation Beyeler se consacre au jeune Pablo Picasso et à ses peintures et sculptures des périodes dites bleue et rose de 1901 à 1906.
" In its most prestigious exhibition to date, the Fondation Beyeler has devoted itself to the early paintings and sculptures of Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) that date from his so-called Blue and Pink periods to early Cubism.
The paintings from this stage of his career, all produced between 1901 and 1907, are milestones on the road Picasso took to becoming the most famous artist of the twentieth century. They can be counted among modernism s most beautiful and most emotional works, and are also some of the most precious works of art ever to exist.
This comprehensive exhibition and its companion catalogue feature around eighty masterpieces, most of which are only rarely loaned out by famous museums and private collections around the world. "
