When Pablo Picasso arrived in Paris in 1900 a new world opened
up for the nineteen-year-old painter. Developing his own style and
getting inspiration in the work of artists such as Van Gogh,
Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec and Steinlen.
"With pioneering works such as Melancholy woman (1901, Detroit
Institute of Arts) from his melancholy Blue Period and the famous
Self-portrait with a palette (1906, Philadelphia Museum of Art) from
his Pink Period, he paved the way for Cubism, which would forever
change the course of twentieth-century painting.
The exhibition in the Van Gogh Museum traces Picasso’s artistic
development from his arrival in Paris until 1907, when he had grown
into a leading figure of the French avant-garde."
