From 24th April till 04th November 2018 the towns of Martina Franca, Ostuni and Mesagne will host an exhibition with several works by Pablo Picasso. "Picasso, l'altra metà del cielo" (Picasso, the other half of the sky) aims to explain the female universe seen by Picasso and the works of some of the artists that loved and worked with him. It won't only be exposed the works of the Spanish master but also artists like Françoise Gilot, muse of the artist and his life's partner for ten years; and some works by Dora Maar, an eclectic artist who lived a passionate story with Picasso. Overall, the works will be more than 300 including unique works and graphics by Picasso, Gilot and Dora Maar, plus a hundred original photographs by Edward Quinn, well-known American photographer as a testimony of the time when Picasso dedicated himself to ceramics. The exhibition will also host some photos of Robert Capa, as well as a series of photographs of all those who portrayed Picasso while he was at work.
We are very much looking forward to it, a great opportunity for our territory and an example that with commitment great results can be achieved.
