The first exhibition of Picasso's works in the National Prado Museum

The jubilee exhibition «Picasso. Tradition and Avant-garde» held in the National Prado Museum is dedicated to the 125th anniversary of the return of Picasso’s picture «Hernika» to Spain.

The canvas depicts the destruction of Basque town of the years of Civil War in Spain (1936–1939). Under Picasso’s will, the canvas had been preserved in the USA before Spain turned to democracy. One can see pictures dated from different periods of Picasso’s oeuvre – «blue», «pink», and «cubist», including the famous «Hernika».

«Lady with a Fan» and «Can and Bowls», two works from the State Hermitage, have been exhibited. In fact, it is the first Picasso’s exhibition in Prado.

The exposition is on view until September 3.
