An exhibition to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of Pablo Picasso’s trip to Italy has opened in Rome.


‘Between Cubism and Classicism’ at the Museum Scuderie del Quirinale showcases the artist’s works from 1915 to 1925 and features paintings, drawings, gouache, watercolors, sketches and stage dresses from museums across the globe.


The co-founder of Cubism travelled to Italy in 1917 with his friend Jean Cocteau for the production of the ballet ‘Parade’. The trip was hugely influential for the artist, and marked a so-called ‘return to order’ in his work.
