It is always a great pleasure to see some of Picasso's oeuvre. Today I've enjoyed a thematic retrospective of prints, called Picasso Mediterráneo. The works displayed, taken from different phases of his long career, show the always-present elements of the Mediterranean culture and life in Picasso's work, and his unique place between the spanish tradition and the modern revolution in art.
Different aspects of mediterranean culture are mirrored in these prints, with references to The Bible, Greeks and Romans, a celebration of Mythology, the arab world, the joy of living and celebration of the human body, the beach, the mediterranean fauna, landscapes and, of course, bullfighting.
This exhibition is currently shown at the Palau Solleric in Palma, until january, 9th,
