The exposition contains more than 70 works by the Spanish artist - paintings, sculptures, illustrations, paper decorations, as well as photographs of Picasso and archival documents illustrating the historical authenticity of events in the life and work of the artist.

In a specially designed room and using documents and modern technologies, the exhibition provides an opportunity to get a more complete picture of the life of a famous artist during the Second World War.
