The Picasso Century draws on the renowned collections of the Musée national d’art moderne-Centre de création
industrielle (MNAM-CCI), Centre Pompidou, Paris, and the Musée national Picasso-Paris. It provides a nuanced
exploration of Pablo Picasso’s life, career and many artistic exchanges, and of the complex cast of characters that influenced his development over more than seventy years. With a lead essay by Didier Ottinger (Deputy Director, MNAM-CCI), biographical texts, entries on artworks, a detailed chronology and more than 280 images, The Picasso Century offers a significant and often thrilling insight into one of the twentieth century’s most iconic artists and the rich artistic milieu in which he worked.
