Picasso: Blue and Rose
The Picasso: Blue and Rose exhibition at the Musee d’Orsay gives you a chance to study notable pieces of the Blue and Rose periods and see rarely shown works.
From 18/09/2018 to 06/01/2019
Colour is integral to art as much as form and subject. An interesting choice of colour, or even a specific hue, can transform a piece and raise more questions about its purpose. Each colour has deep significance and symbolism for the viewer as well as the artist. Blues are cool and melancholy, yet are also relaxing and inviting. Rose is warm and rich, without becoming as bold and fiery as a stronger red. It evokes positivity and romance. This shift is part of the reason that Picasso’s Blue and Rose periods are so intriguing. From 1900 to 1906, the young artist shifted from blue to rose as his outlook changed.
The new exhibit at the Musee d’Orsay – Picasso: Blue and Rose – lets the audience study key pieces of this period in finer detail. This means a chance to see rarely seen work, but also to learn more about the artist as a young man.
The show continues until January 6th.
