Pablo Picasso & Les Femmes d’Alger

26.03.2021 to 27.06.2021
Museum Berggruen

In the winter of 1954–55, Pablo Picasso (1881–1973) realised a long-held desire. The 73-year-old painted a response to Eugène Delacroix’s famous work Women of Algiers, of which he produced two versions as a memento of his 1832 journey to North Africa.

Over three months, Picasso created a series of 15 oil paintings, which were accompanied by some 100 sketches and lithographs. Picasso’s response to Delacroix is not a single picture but a series of images which only remained together as a discrete ensemble for a short time. Today, Museum Bergruen is the only public museum in Europe that has one of the paintings from this series on exhibit.

Alongside paintings and works on paper from the Femmes d’Alger series, the exhibition will also feature works that inspired Picasso, as well as some that he himself inspired.
