In the summer of 1921, Pablo Picasso left Paris for the countryside of Fontainebleau with his wife and their infant son. Even when he was on vacation, he was working, and over the course of three months Picasso produced an astonishingly varied body of work. From lively line drawings depicting the family’s rented villa to the monumental Three Musicians and Three Women at the Spring, which he tacked to the walls of his makeshift garage studio, much of Picasso’s output was also inextricably linked to Fontainebleau itself. Join us to learn more about Picasso’s brief residency there during a live online conversation with curators Anne Umland, Alexandra Morrison, and Francesca Ferrari. Together they’ll retrace the artist’s steps from his summer home to the Château de Fontainebleau, recounting their own discovery of this setting steeped in history.
