Attention: Paris ! Picasso and Dance


Recommended Posts

Pablo Picasso and Dance — Exhibition until Sept.16

Although he could be the greatest genius in the history of art and I love some of his work immensely I can still be pretty selective based on his subject matter. But….in regard to his works about dance, I might be able to embrace him like a long lost brother.

Anyone based in Paris might be interested. If you do go please tell us about it, but please don’t make it sound too good because I’ll probably miss my chance by a few days.

"An exploration of Picasso’s work in relation to the art of dance is on display until mid-September at the Bibliothèque-Musée de l'Opéra National de Paris. Sketches converse with photographs and extracts from ballets, delving into Picasso’s representation of movement."

Thanks - the three drawings accompanying the article are new to me. At least I can't remember having seen them before - there may be some 'hidden gems' in the exhibit.

Here's a brief descriptive broadcast in French and a video with some interesting views.


 ".... 130 œuvres [works], documents, photos, costumes et éléments de décors de ballets, rarement montrés en France, issus des collections de l'opéra et de la BnF, pour évoquer "Picasso et la danse"."


Here's the book.


Added: Google "Pablo Picasso Dance images" and you might find a whole bunch of interesting things. I did.
