      What is the meaning of masterpiece for Pablo Picasso? The exhibition “Picasso: Masterpieces! answers this question by bringing together some of his greatest works, some of which will be shown in Paris for the first time. Thanks to exceptional loans, masterpieces from all over the world will be displayed alongside those from the Musée National Picasso-Paris.

      The assembled collection offers a new look at Picasso’s creativity with special attention given to his critical reception. It explores the exhibitions, articles and publications that accompanied each artwork and helped forge their reputation as masterpieces over the years. The Musée National Picasso-Paris archives play an essential part in telling this story.

    • Diego Giacometti

      17 MAY 2018 > 4 NOV 2019

      The exhibition “Diego Giacometti at the Musée Picasso” is an opportunity to explore the story behind Diego Giacometti’s extraordinary commission for the opening of the Musée national Picasso-Paris in October 1985.

      This remarkable 50-piece collection of chairs, benches, lights and tables, designed exclusively for the Hôtel Salé, was the pinnacle of Diego Giacometti’s career, and the final commission he completed before his death in July 1985. Called an “artisan-poet” by Jean Leymarie, Diego Giacometti incorporated various aspects of his universe into this furniture, including his interest in nature and the plant world, his reinterpretations of ancient, Greek and Etruscan sources, and his desire to create true “geometry in the air”. The bronze and resin furniture, now indissociable from the décor of the Hôtel Salé, will enter into a dialogue with the artist’s original plasters. His studio collection will also be presented, along with a selection of hitherto-unseen photographs and archives, in order to situate this commission within its creative context.
