Dubai only: Discover Picasso, Dali and Miro in a new photo exhibition
The world over knows the coveted artworks by masters Picasso, Salvador Dali and Joan Miro but now, for the first time in the Middle East, Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach has presented Revealed by Sofitel, a photography exhibition that invites the viewer on an intimate journey through the creative work processes of these artists.
Some of the highlights of the exhibition curated by Olivier Picasso, grandson to the great artist himself, include a monochromatic image of Picasso and his muse Sylvette David, an image of Miro dwarfed by the size of his large studio and an image of Dali working on another surrealist project near the sea.
"The exhibition features 30 photographs, 30 unique testimonies from Paris Match's extraordinary archives," said Olivier Picasso. "I was given the opportunity to make the selection and to assist in the presentation, affording me another chance to try to understand the creative process, what happens between the hand and the canvas, the spirit and the place, the proof and the final print, the human and the divine."
Revealed by Sofitel runs until December 26 at Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach. Also, discover the ongoing art show titled Fragments, an Exhibition by Mahmoud Obaidi.
