The exhibition, which features more than 50 sculptures made by Pablo Picasso between 1909 and 1962, showcases the plurality of styles that the artist used throughout his career to represent the shapes of the human body.
From cubism to the abstract, from primitive to found object. The exhibition offers a journey through almost sixty years of Picasso's sculptures, with the human body and matter as the focus of attention. Wood, bronze, iron, cement, steel and plaster were some of the materials the artist used to represent the human figure in a three-dimensional way.Although sculpture is his least-known artistic discipline, the genius from Malaga regarded sculpture as just as important as painting, engraving or ceramics. “No art is more or less important than the others”, said Pablo Picasso when asked about his works.Organised by the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in collaboration with the Picasso Museum Malaga, the exhibition Picasso, the sculptor. Matter and body is part of the international Picasso Celebration 1973-2023 programme to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the artist's death.
