Dressed and nude. Insistent and introvert. As models and as themselves. Curvy and jagged. Observing and sleeping. Over the course of seven decades, the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso (1881–1973) depicted the female form as a colourful metamorphosis; always full of yearning and steely will, desire and passion.
Until 23 February 2020, ARKEN will be showing a dazzling array of Pablo Picasso’s best works in the exhibition Beloved by Picasso – The Power of the Model. The exhibition is created in close collaboration with Musée national Picasso-Paris and presents a total of 51 works including paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints – among these are many masterpieces from the museum’s collection. Beloved by Picasso – The Power of the Model presents Pablo Picasso’s artistic progression in the light of his models, and therefore the artist must share the spotlight with the five women: Olga Khokhlova, Marie-Thérèse Walter, Dora Maar, Françoise Gilot and Jacqueline Roque.
