Devorar París. Picasso 1900-1907
Picasso first set foot Paris in the autumn of 1900, on a visit to the Universal Exposition. A year later he had his first Paris show, at the prestigious Vollard gallery, and had begun to make a name among the city's artists and intellectuals. The catalogue of the exhibition 'Picasso in Paris 1900-1907. Eating Fire', by Picasso expert Marilyn McCully, profiles the young artist's life during this crucial period, revealing the impact made on him by his first-hand exposure to the work of certain individual artists, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, Steinlen, Rodin, Cézanne and Puvis de Chavannes and tracing the process that led him to forge a style of his own and become the leading figure of the French avant-garde.
