The Picasso Museum in Barcelona is opening the Picasso and the Reventós Family exhibition, which celebrates the friendship between the artist from Malaga and the Reventós family.
Until 10 January, the Picasso Museum is holding the Picasso and the Reventós Family exhibition, which follows the friendship between Pablo Picasso and Barcelona's Reventós family over the best part of a century.
Pablo Picasso met the brothers Ramon and Jacint Reventós Bordoy in 1899. From that moment on, the artist kept up a close relationship with the two Reventós brothers, with periods of greater or lesser intensity. This friendship continued into the following generation, especially after the visit that Jacint Reventós Contí made to the painter in 1950.
The museum exhibition includes a series of portraits that Pablo Picasso painted of his friends, their correspondence, the great majority of which is illustrated with drawings by the artist, an exceptional series of related engravings and the literary work of Ramon Reventós through his books illustrated with engravings by Picasso.
