Gagosian, in partnership with the artist’s grandson, Bernard Ruiz-Picasso, is pleased to present “Picasso: Minotaurs and Matadors,” curated by Sir John Richardson. The exhibition examines the intersection of Picasso’s bullfighting imagery with his mythological and biographical compositions of the 1930s. Including works dating from 1889 to 1971, this career-long survey traces Picasso’s engagement with the ancient rituals and narratives of his native Mediterranean.
