Picasso in Paris

The deal with Picasso is you either like him or you don’t.
Whatever the case is no matter what you think you can’t deny
that he is an important part of our vision of art and the change that came with him.
At the beginning of the last century the place to be for the Arts was
the dreamy city of Romance and we all now that is Paris.
 
 
It was the center of the Avant-Garde.
The Van Gogh Museum has made a special expo showing you the young Picasso.
From the 18th of February to the 29th of May.
 
When Picasso was 19 ,like many young dreamers, he arrived in Paris and a whole
new world opened for him. What was the new world? Seeing in real life the paintings
of a few of the greats we now know:
Gauguin
Van Gogh
Toulouse-Lautrec
Steinlen
 
Along the way taking pieces and inspiration from these artists he started developing his own style.
The exhibition shows the artistic evolution that Picasso made ​​since his arrival in Paris until 1907,
when he had become leader of the French avant-garde.
 
 
From his blue period into his pink period and how he developed himself in to the cubism current
which would in itself revolutionize the artistic world as we knew it.

There is a painting from his blue period where he shows his inspiration (clearly van gogh)
and pays hommage to his best friend and one of the million dreamers who never made it:
This is one of the inspirations for me to see this fantastic expo is not only the fact that it is about Picasso
but because of the amazing introduction to Picasso and the painting you see above thanks to Joost Zwagerman
I recommend watching the video (in dutch) to learn more and feel inspired when you walk into the museum.
