Within the context of the commemorations to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Pablo Picasso, the Museo del Prado is presenting Picasso, El Greco and Analytical Cubism, an exhibited curated by Carmen Giménez, to which the Museo Thyssen has loaned Man with a Clarinet.

In conjunction with this loan we are organising a private tour of the exhibition. Focusing on the figure of Picasso, it reveals the influence on his work of artists such as Velázquez and El Greco, the latter a key figure for an understanding of his initial phase.
