The everyday atmosphere in Picasso’s studio, with his family and friends, is one of the main themes running through this fresh selection of images by the photographer Roberto Otero which the MPM will be showing next summer, from 16 June to 20 August 2008. With these new photographs, the Museum, which exhibited the first selection in the summer of 2006, will reveal Picasso’s more private, personal sphere, with the aim of giving the visitor a different look at the man behind the myth. The exhibition has been curated by Sofía Díez and Carmina David-Jones.
Roberto Otero (Buenos Aires, 1931 - Palma de Mallorca, 2004) is one of the photographers who had constant access to the more private side of Pablo Picasso during the last years of his life, at the artist’s chateau in Mougins, in the south of France. Otero’s archive comprises more than 1500 images, which the MPM acquired in late 2005 and which are an exceptional testimony to Picasso’s daily life and the creative process that went into his work during the 1960s.
