APRIL IN PARIS MUSEE
Pablo Picasso is the most famous, wealthy and influential artist of the 20th century, with a career spanning eight decades, transcending the art and the cultural landscape of the last century and ours. During this tour, you will understand about the man himself, as we explore his work: from his early classical paintings, inspired by the Spanish masters Goya, Velasquez, and El Greco, under the tutelage of his father into his own revolution to his relocation to Paris, where Picasso became Picasso. Not only will you learn about how he painted, but what inspired his constant changes in his method from his life. The rivalries, famously with French artist Henri Matisse, his collaborations with George Bracques, which gave birth to cubism, the movement that inspired modern art itself. His work with Jean Cocteau and The Ballet Rousse, which changed costume and stage design in theatre to the horrific wars, that took the lives of his closest friends that would plague him throughout his life, and of course, his great loves, his great heartbreaks from the women...that changed as much as his artistic output.
Simply said he is the father of modern art, leaving behind forty thousand pieces of artwork at his death, he is the controversial genius who is still the benchmark for creation today. On this in-depth 2 hour tour, you will not only see some of Picasso's greatest masterpieces but you will learn the affect that he had, not only on his generation, but ours.
