Alejandra’s lecture will delve into the origins of Picasso’s imagery. She will talk about the themes and images that continue to appear in his work from the beginning until his last years, mostly linked to his Mediterranean roots, delving into more than 80 years of work that reflect life and death, family, religion, the bull, Greek mythology, and the great masters of art going from his very first known bullfight oil painting at the age of 8 to his very last Musketeers at 91 years. Picasso’s great variety of techniques and his constant research into new ways of artistic expression will be discussed and how his life among artist friends and many others enriched his personal and artistic life.
