Pablo Picasso, Paul Eluard. A sublime friendship
Pablo Picasso, who maintained an unwavering friendship with Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918) and Paul Eluard (1895-1952), never managed to overcome the premature death of those two great poets.

In 1935, Eluard would become part of the most intimate circle of Picasso. During a long, exalted and stormy period, in which the Spanish Civil War, the Occupation, the Liberation and the affiliation to the Communist Party were linked together, the two friends would form a true duo, who seemed to want to share not only points of view, but also behaviours. The poet and the artist coincided in the field of art and creation, as well as in the same political orientation.

Eluard and Picasso got to know each other and experienced the intense interrelation between painting and poetry, creation and the world, history and society. And they managed to preserve "the hard need to last" of their sublime friendship.
