Vienna, Austria – Kunst Haus Wien presents Picasso – Myths, Fables and Models, on view through July 5, 2009. With 120 graphic works by Pablo Picasso, taken from five creative periods spanning approximately a decade each, the exhibition leads us into Picasso’s universe of motifs and obsessions. We encounter fabulous creatures from Greek mythology, such as the Minotaur or the centaurs, as well as the bullfight theme and several of Picasso’s favourite models. The exhibition, conceived especially for Kunst Haus Wien, presents works selected from the extensive collections of the Graphikmuseum Pablo Picasso Münster and offers unique insights into Picasso’s methods.
