AMSTERDAM.- The exhibition provided the first opportunity in the Netherlands to see a major overview of how Pablo Ruiz y Picasso (1881-1973) developed from a young unknown artist in the culturally bustling city of Paris into the leader of the avant-garde. The exhibition included more than seventy works of art, including such masterpieces as Self-portrait with a pallet and Moulin de la Galette and important works from private collections and museums such as the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York. As many as 471,168 art lovers visited the exhibition Picasso in Paris, 1900-1907. This means that three out of every four visitors to our museum also visited the Picasso exhibition, a remarkably high figure. This makes this exhibition one of the best visited in the history of our museum.
