The Fondation Beyeler calls the exhibition "The Young Picasso - Blue and Rose Period" its own top-class exhibition to date, if that doesn't mean anything!
The exhibition is dedicated to the work of the famous artist Pablo Picasso in his early years between 1901 and 1906. These two formative periods of his work are called the Blue and the Rose Period. Hence the title of the exhibition. Never before have his works, which were among the most touching of the 20th century, been exhibited in such density. You really shouldn't miss this exhibition!
The exhibition "Cosmos Cubism. From Picasso to Léger", as the name suggests, deals intensively with the period of Cubism. Cubism came into being in the 20th century through the works of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, and then reformed the art world. The exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Basel is intended to give an overview of the broad range of this movement and thus give the viewer a broad access to it.Read more
