Oh Thursday 23rd March, the MACBA Foundation organized a guided tour to the exhibition “Picasso Portraits” at the Picasso Museum in Barcelona.

Emmanuel Guigon, Director of the museum, welcomed us and then we had a guided tour through the magnificent exhibition co-organized by the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Picasso Museum in Barcelona.

The human figure was Pablo Picasso’s main subject and portraiture always occupied an important place in his art. He hardly ever worked by commission and almost all his portraits and caricatures depicted people of his intimate circle .

Free from external pressure, he interpreted his subjects according to his vision and understanding of them, choosing both style and medium he considered most expressive on each occasion.
