Picasso, his life, and his work seen by Fernande Olivier

To mark the 50th anniversary of the death of the Spanish painter Picasso, this exhibition traces a pivotal period in the world of painting through the eyes of a woman.

It was in the Paris of Montmartre that Fernande Olivier met Picasso. A personality in the ateliers of the Bateau-Lavoir and a professional model, she moved among the greatest names in painting at the start of the 20th century.

During this exhibition, you will follow a chronological and theme-based itinerary guided by the writings and testimonies of Fernande Olivier. She was Picasso's companion between 1904 and 1912, and it was she who accompanied him in his progression towards Cubism.

Step into the circle of the ‘Picasso crowd’, amongst artists who made up the group (Georges Braque, Guillaume Apollinaire, Max Jacob), and follow the gaze of a modern woman who was a witness to an exciting pivotal period.
