Without doubt one of the most famous and most recognisable artists in the world, Pablo Picasso
Without doubt one of the most famous and most recognisable artists in the world, Pablo Picasso's works draw the crowds wherever they are exhibited. Lucky visitors to Mallorca can now see one of the
great man's sketches that is widely regarded as a preliminary drawing for his most well-known painting ever, the angst riddled Guernica which depicts the bombing of that Basque town in the Spanish
La Minotauromachie (1935) has the same style and several features which were used in Guernica; the Minotaur, horse and young girl for example, and is the central part of an exhibition called
Picasso in his Labyrinth which has many prints from his 'Suite Vollard' series of prints and runs until May 31, 2014 at the Juan March Museum.
Running concurrently with Picasso, the museum has another exhibition titled The Collection Exhibited (2013–2014) - New Arrivals, which finishes on March 22, 2014. Like many museums all over the
world, the March has most of its works in storage and only a fraction on display. Now, they've reorganised their permanent collection and put around 30 'new works' previously in storage on display
from some of Spain's most important contemporary artists of the last decades.
The museum plans to repeat this process every year during the winter months and will augment its own collection with other pieces on loan from Spain and abroad so that visitors will have something
new and fresh to see each year as well as the temporary exhibitions.
What a great idea! The Museum is on Calle San Miguel 11, Palma and is open;
Monday-Friday: 10:30 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Saturday: 10:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Sunday and Holidays: Closed
and is totally FREE to enter.
