Picasso and the wine

Temporary exhibition // 16 April - 29 August 2021

For its fifth major exhibition, the Cité du Vin honors one of the greatest artists of recent centuries: Pablo Picasso.

The exhibition benefits from the support of the two main museums in Paris and Barcelona dedicated to Picasso and the generosity of private collections of prime importance. Bringing together nearly 60 artworks by Picasso, from the best known to the most unjustly neglected, this exhibition constitutes the first exploration of the place of wine and popular spirits in the painter's multifaceted work.

A selection of works covering the whole of his career and the diversity of the fields invested by the artist as well as some enlargements of photographs will evoke the man as much as his production in eight thematic and chronological sections.

Why should you support us ?

By supporting this exhibition, individuals and companies enable the Fondation pour la Culture et les Civilisations du Vin to :

  • To conserve and enhance the universal heritage of wine by exploring the theme of wine in Picasso's multifaceted work.
  • To offer its public major works from the two main museums in Paris and Barcelona dedicated to Picasso and the generosity of private collections of prime importance.
