With Paloma Alarcó, curator of the exhibition

Picasso/Lautrec was the first monographic exhibition devoted to comparing these two great masters of modern art. Although their artistic link has been repeatedly established by literature and contemporary critics, this has been the first time their works had been displayed alongside each other in an exhibition.
The show also examined this fascinating relationship from new viewpoints, as it did not merely explore the cliché of the young Picasso as an admirer of Lautrec in Barcelona and his early years in Paris, but traced the latter’s lingering influence throughout the Spanish artist’s lengthy career, including his final period.
