Miro and Picasso - friends who transformed the art of the 20th century

The unique joint project of the Picasso Museum in Barcelona and the "Juan Miro" Foundation, which is being held simultaneously in both institutions in the Spanish metropolis, continues for only 20 more days, BGNES reported.

Juan Miró and Pablo Picasso maintained a close friendship for more than fifty years. Both choose Barcelona to bequeath their creativity in the form of monographic art centers. Picasso's museum is in the city center and the building itself is an architectural landmark, while Miro's is on Montjuic hill. The magnificent courtyard presents many sculptures of the creator.

The exhibition "Miro - Picasso" is organized around six main chronological and thematic axes and collects more than 250 works from public and private collections from all over the world to show side by side the two artists who transformed the art of the 20th century. Among them are Picasso's "Three Dancers", which arrived from the Tate Gallery in London, and Miró's "The Farm" from the National Gallery in Washington.

From the moment they met in 1917 in Barcelona, to their last monumental projects, including the pavilion of the Spanish Republic in Paris in 1937 or their interest in the primitive technique of ceramics, the exhibition shows how these two artists and friends shared a lot of transcendent moments of his career.

The "Miro-Picasso" exhibition can be seen until February 25 in Barcelona - less than 3 hours away by direct flight from Sofia.

The exhibition is also part of the events dedicated to Pablo Picasso that Spain and France are holding around the world until the spring of this year, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of his death. /BGNES
