The Pushkin State Fine Arts Museum will host an exhibition "Picasso: Reflections-Metamorphoses" from November 29 to January 23, reports the website www.museum.ru. The exhibition is organized as part of the 14th international music festival Svyatoslav Richter's Nights and dedicated to the topic "Picasso and the world's art heritage". The exhibition's concept is based on the great Spanish painter's interpretation of these or those artistic traditions or works by his predecessors. Some Picasso's gouache works presented in the section "Picasso and African sculpture" show the role of African art in the formation of early cubism. The second section is entitled "Picasso and Antique art". It features two Picasso's graphic series: famous illustrations to Ovid's "Metamorphoses" (30 etchings) and to the so-called "La Suite Vollard" (30 out of 100 engravings of this series). The showpieces were granted by the Picasso Museum in Paris. This section is supplemented by antique pottery and sculptures from the museum's collection. The third section "Picasso and European masters of the 16th-19th centuries" will presents paintings, drawings and engravings created in the last period of Pablo Picasso's activity and inspired by Lucas Cranach the Elder, Diego Velasquez, Nicholas Poussin, Gerard David, Eugene Delacroix, Edouard Manet, etc. The exposition features 132 showpieces granted by the Picasso Museums in Paris and Barcelona, the National Modern Art Museum in Paris and the Stuttgart State Gallery
