PICASSO et LA BANDE DESSINÉE

Due to the health crisis, museums and cultural institutions in France are currently closed. But most exhibitions are visible online. And we really wanted you to discover what, culturally, makes us vibrate in Paris.

While Picasso began painting in the 1890’s, modern comic strips were emerging in the United States.

The artist developed a particular taste for the comics he read in the final section of the daily newspaper. Cosmics were an entertainment to him but also and inspiration to the artist he was. Visual culture is mostly impregnated by popular contemporary sources and is instilled in his works of art. Picasso adds the formal vocabulary of the ninth art to his work. 

The show explores the parallel presence of Picasso and his paintings in the work of the greatest international comics authors from such as Art Spiegelman, Hergé, Gotlib or Milo Manara.  Lastly, the exhibition invites the visitors to experiment more monumental and contemporary forms of comics. 

By embracing an unknown aspect of Picasso’s formal approach, this exhibition reveals a playful side to his work. 

This genius never stops surprising us !
