Picasso Celebration 1973-2023

In conjunction with the exhibition Picasso/Chanel the museum has organised a film cycle featuring titles from different periods and countries and in all of which Picasso and Chanel have key roles, either through their direct presence or in films that remind us of their importance in the fields of art history and fashion.

Chanel designed the costumes in some of the films in the cycle, including Tonight or Never (1931) by Mervyn LeRoy (made available by the Mary Pickford Foundation) and The Rules of the Game (1939) by Jean Renoir.

In addition, titles such as Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky (2009) by Jan Kounen and the more recent Correspondances Jean Cocteau-Pablo Picasso (2020) by Dorothée Lachaud offer reassessments of the two artists through different film genres.

The cycle also includes two shorts on Coco Chanel by Karl Lagerfield and a special showing of Picasso and Dance: Le Train Bleu / Le Tricorne, which includes a recreation of the ballet that is the subject of the exhibition’s final section, Le Train Bleu, which premiered in 1924 with a libretto by Jean Cocteau, costumes by Chanel and a drop curtain by Picasso.

Exhibition organized with the support of the National Commission for the Commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the death of the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso and with the exceptional support of Musée national Picasso-París
