Step inside the famous Louvre Abu Dhabi, the first universal museum in the Arab world dedicated to translation and promoting intercultural understanding. Three new works by Pablo Picasso have been exhibited at the museum. Each artwork highlights a unique aspect of his artistic process. Let’s learn more about the museum’s collection.

Inside the Louvre Abu Dhabi

The four parts of the world, four colossal marble statues, have made their debut outside their residence at Versailles, and the museum has unveiled a dramatic new loan exhibition.

Two Picasso works hung in the museum’s fourth wing on Monday. Originally displaying Piet Mondrian’s masterpiece Composition in Blue, Red, Yellow and Black, the entrance wall of the wing now displays the 1911 painting Woman Holding a Mandolin. The shapes and depictions of African art inspired many European painters in the early 20th century and became a source of creativity for Picasso and Andr√©.

Over the course of ten years, Picasso painted many different portraits of Khokhlova. But perhaps the most enigmatic of these is Portrait of a Seated Woman. But later, it was discovered that it was his wife Olga. This was drawn when they were apart. She supports his practice and career. Carnet No. 1076 – Study for Yuri Gagarin is another work by Picasso that has been acquired by the Louvre Abu Dhabi.

Consisting of a series of 12 colored pages and 8 blank pages, the artwork reveals the subtlety of Picasso’s pencil strokes, and some pages even show traces of his previous drawings in his notebooks. Later this year, the artifacts are expected to go on display.

The Louvre Abu Dhabi has launched a new collection on the 50th anniversary of Picasso’s death. It is a great coincidence that it coincides with the institution’s fifth anniversary. According to Nujam, Picasso’s work came directly from the artist’s family. It was a long process that took several years to complete.

To mark the occasion and highlight its Universal Museum model, Louvre Abu Dhabi is completing its artwork rotation process.

If you have a knack for appreciating some really good art, be sure to visit.
