Sunday in Geneva. Within the Quartier Libre space, people speak English, Spanish, Italian, Russian, or Arabic. Pablo Picasso still attracts as much. His posters are presented in chronological order. His life unfolds as do his words.
The blue period, the pink period, cubism, surrealism, his pencil stroke in the name of peace, bullfighting, the Vallauris period… The exhibition shows the talent of the billionaire communist. Then this quote from the artist (in French):
“Among human beings, there are many more copies than originals.”
There are also children creating a dove from a sheet of paper and some completed “artworks” hanging from the ceiling.
As you walk out and think of this BIG artistic legacy, do not forget that Picasso’s granddaughter wrote about her grandfather’s misogyny. Two of the ogre’s wives committed suicide. Others had nervous breakdowns.
History says he was a genius.
