The project is dedicated to the first wife of Pablo Picasso, Olga Khokhlova. Visitors to the exhibition will be able to see works by the artist, photographs, letters and things from the personal archive of the Picasso family, devoted to the love story of the Spanish artist and Russian dancer.
The exhibition "Picasso & Khokhlova" more than 200 exhibits - from monumental panels to pieces of furniture, letters and cards. Most of the paintings and drawings are included in the collection of the National Picasso Museum in Paris. In addition, Bernard Ruiz-Picasso, grandson of Pablo Picasso and Olga Khokhlova, for the first time will show in Russia a family collection of unknown works of the master, as well as archival materials found in Olga's trunk, where they were kept for many years. The study of the archive allowed to restore the history of relations between Olga and Pablo and create this unique exhibition project.
The exposition is based on the development of subjects connected with Olga and themes in the artist's work - from neoclassical portraits and motherhood images to surrealistic visions. Each topic is covered in one of the eleven sections of the exhibition.
The project is organized together withNational Museum of Picasso in Paris and the Foundation for the Support of the Art of Almina and Bernard Ruiz-Picasso (FABA).
