How was the portrait at the age of Picasso?

"The Mirror and the Mask, Portraiture in the Age of Picasso"

From February 6 to May 20, 2007, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Foundation Caja Madrid present a new exhibition which intends to study the portrait in the art of the 20th century. The portrait takes an important place in art. From the avant-gardists of the beginning of the century to the various artists of modernity, the portrait is an inevitable step in their artistic process.

The exhibition at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in the Spanish capital brings together 166 paintings and sculptures. Hugely influential names like Cezanne, Van Gogh, Matisse, Modigliani, Bacon and Warhol are brought together- offering an unusual chance to compare different approaches from different artistic movements and generations.
