ANTIBES. “Les Vacances de Monsieur Pablo Antibes- JuanLes Pins, 1920 – 1946” Until 15 january 2019. Musée Picasso.

The exhibition, which includes about one hundred works created in Antibes Juan-les-Pins, places in a new light those that were eminently studious vacations. It is in 1920 that Pablo Picasso begins to spend his holidays in Antibes Juan-les-Pins, a place where he will return almost every year, in the same season, until the Second World war.

All these works immersed in the light of the Mediterranean testify to pleasure with which the artist finds the shores of the sea that have seen his birth. It’s just the familiarity and taste for the territory so typical of the French Riviera that will motivate him to return also in the post-war period and in particular in 1946, the year in which the collection of the Antibes museum will see the light, a collection in which the artist will show his affinity with the city, through compositions that reflect the classic and mythological past.
