To celebrate Pablo Picasso’s eighty-fifth birthday, a huge exhibition entitled Homage to Picasso was organised, at the initiative of André Malraux, across three Parisian institutions: the Grand Palais, the Bibliothèque Nationale, and the Petit Palais. While the Grand Palais presented around three hundred paintings, originating from the artist’s private collection and the holdings of some of the world’s greatest museums, and the Bibliothèque Nationale exhibited a selection of prints, the Petit Palais displayed some two hundred drawings, two hundred sculptures, 115 ceramics, and the stage curtain for the ballet Parade. The discovery of Picasso as a sculptor was a revelation for visitors.

Pablo Ruiz Picasso (1881 – 1973) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, and theater designer who spent most of his adult life in France. One of the most influential artists of the 20th century, he is known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907) and the anti-war painting Guernica (1937), a dramatic portrayal of the bombing of Guernica by German and Italian air forces during the Spanish Civil War.
