Fascinated more by feelings than by form, Picasso found in beastliness and mythology themes that fit his aesthetic. Among his recurring reference points remains the strangeness of hybrid beings (fauns, centaurs, minotaurs) intimately lacerated between humanity and beastliness, good and evil, life and death. They encounter the violence of war, bullfights, unbridled fantasy and eroticism.
The exhibit is divided into five sections, with about 350 pieces, including the most important masterpieces of the Picasso Museum, which are compared to important antiques and works of art following the classical canon of beauty.
