The exhibition highlights how the great exponent of modern art was able to use pencil and ink in a highly original way, painting words and transforming them into pictograms that tell us about his world and memories. It features examples of facsimiles, photographs and publications related to his literary output, as well as poems and a documentary produced especially for the occasion, in which Spanish authors and intellectuals, including the director of the Instituto Cervantes, poet Luis García Montero, reflect upon Picasso and his written work.
