“Picasso the ultimate work: homage to Jacqueline”.
For this new exhibition, curator Jean-Louis Prat has chosen to propose a scenography with a selection of works from the artist's last twenty years.
The association Le Doyenné, the president JJ ​​Faucher and the director of the Doyenné S. Pierron are very happy to present the exhibition to you

Pablo Picasso's last twenty years are intimately linked to his meeting with Jacqueline Roque in 1953. She became the artist's new and last companion, she was his muse, his model and became his wife in 1961.
This period corresponds to a change of place of life, he installs his new studio in California in Cannes and acquires the castle of Vauvenargues. The domain of Notre-Dame-de-Vie in Mougins will be the last haven of life that will complete these fertile places in which many works will see the light of day.
From 1954, portraits of Jacqueline drawn or painted appeared. Different styles seem to define the constantly renewed vision of its model, for nearly twenty years it will be omnipresent in this ultimate work.
All these works are marked by the genius of the draftsman, the engraver and the ceramist that he became in Vallauris. Ceramics and pottery long neglected in artistic creation, with the exception of Joan Miró, will be reborn thanks to a new creative impetus.
Picasso will make these media known to a wider audience through original editions.
In this incandescent period, the ultimate work appears as the innovative message of hope for the XNUMXth century.
Important, often major works punctuate this journey, they come from private and public collections.
