Affiche de l'exposition Nouveaux chefs-d’œuvre. Dation Maya Ruiz-Picasso au musée national Picasso-Paris


An exhibition at the Musée National Picasso looks at a specific aspect of the famous Spanish painter Pablo Picasso’s life and work – his relationship with his children, particularly Maya, the daughter he had with Marie-Thérèse Walter. Maya was a source of inspiration for Picasso, who painted 14 portraits of her in 1938 and 1939 when she was three years old.

New Masterpieces. Maya Ruiz-Picasso Dation, the first part of a double exhibition devoted to Maya Ruiz-Picasso, unveils a selection of these portraits, together with other paintings, sculptures, graphic works and writings about her and her siblings.

From 16 April to 31 December 2022.
