Pablo Ruiz Picasso was perhaps the most important artistic figure of the 20th century. In 2016, Picasso would have been 135 years old. Honoring this occasion, as well as the 75th birthday of curator Prof. Roland Doschka, the city of Lindau celebrates this ‘double anniversary’ by organising this special exhibit. This marks the second Picasso exhibit at the Stadtmuseum in Lindau, after a successful and critically acclaimed show in 2011 that presented around 50 hand drawings of the Spanish virtuoso. This time, however, the curator Prof. Doschka has opted to present a collection of works that is interesting with regards to its content. The exhibit, titled Picasso’s Passions, presents the major themes of the Spanish painter, graphic artist, sculptor and object artist.
