The best summer exhibitions
Until September 9 at Tate Modern, London
A new exhibition in Kate Modern was called “Picasso 1932: love, glory, tragedy” and is dedicated to one year from the life of Picasso. All the paintings in the exhibition were written in 1932 during a novel with Maria-Teresa Walter, the French artist’s model, the mother of his daughter Maya. They met in 1927, Maria was 17 years old, Picasso – 45. Picasso himself called 1932 “the year of miracles”: that’s when his first retrospective took place. In total, the exhibition will be able to see 100 sculptures and paintings by Picasso, along with photographs from the family archive. One of the most interesting paintings – the famous work “Dream”, which Picasso created in one day: on her in an erotic pose is depicted Maria-Teresa Walter. This is the most expensive work of the artist – American collector Steven Cohen bought it for $ 155 million.
