Atelier Picasso at BASTIAN will recreate Picasso’s Cannes studio as an immersive experience within the gallery, using his treasure trove of objects including furniture, sculptures, ceramics, drawings and prints. Throughout his life Picasso was a prolific image maker, experimenting and excelling in every medium with which he worked. This extraordinary installation-style exhibition brings to life the huge variety of Picasso’s oeuvre.
A hoarder, Picasso piled the surfaces and floors of his studio with source material and original works as seen in this BASTIAN exhibition. Included in Atelier Picasso are a number of photographs from André Villers, a close friend of Picasso since their first encounter in March 1953 who produced many portraits of the artist, offering an unparalleled glimpse into his studio. Le salon de la villa shows Picasso's studio within his famed Villa La Californie where the frenetic atmosphere is apparent.
Other highlights include The Complete Set of 20 Visage plates, Wood Owl, Carreau Visage d'Homme, Gallieri Jorgen Expose Les Lithographies de L’atelier Mourlot and Minotaure caressant une dormeuse.
Picasso’s works crown the collections of every major art gallery and his importance to generations of artists and cultural theorists is unprecedented. This studio recreation in Mayfair will offer a rarely seen exploration into the ingenious mind of one of the greatest talents of the 20th century.
