Exhibition Picasso – Delacroix
from October 9, 2008 to February 2, 2009
Picasso and his Masters
Coinciding with the major exhibition “Picasso and his Masters” held at the Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais, Paris, the Louvre presents around 20 painted and graphic variations on Delacroix’s Women of Algiers in Their Apartment (1834), executed by Picasso in 1954-55.
For the first time the Musée d’Orsay, the Louvre, the Musée Picasso and the Réunion des Musées Nationaux join forces in an attempt to reconstruct the artistic pantheon of the painter who, as soon as he arrived in Paris, used the Louvre, as he had previously used the Prado, as one of the essential sources of inspiration for his creative production.
Organized by: Marie-Laure Bernadac, curator in charge, special advisor on contemporary art at the Louvre.
Denon Wing, 1st floor, room 76.
Open daily except Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and until 10 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays.
€9 ; €6 after 6 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays.
