The presentation of this exhibition at the Musée d’Orsay demonstrates the desire to analyse the young Picasso within the framework of his era. His different productions have thus been placed within the context of the work of his contemporaries and predecessors, both Spanish and French (Casas, Nonell, Casagemas, Steinlen, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec and Gauguin), who he was able to directly observe at salons and galleries, and indirectly through reproduction, among other things.
The exhibition will bring together a large number of paintings and drawings with the aim of presenting a comprehensive overview of the artist’s sculptures and engravings between 1900 and 1906.
