If you happen to be in Beijing from September 1 to 20, you definitely do not want to miss Revealed, an exhibition curated by Pablo Picasso’s grandson Olivier Widmaier Picasso and held at the Sofitel Wanda Beijing.
The exhibition takes an intimate look at the world’s greatest modern artists at work as they reveal themselves to the photographer. Olivier Widmaier Picasso curated the exhibition having hand-selected 30 photographs from the archives of Paris Match, the famous French weekly magazine.
Among the prized photographs on display include a black-and-white image of Pablo Picasso eyeing a Dalmatian longing to climb upon his lap; Salvador Dalí seen sitting in an animal exhibit at the Paris Zoo; Jeff Koons styling a BMW for the 24 Hours of Le Mans; Pierre Soulages crouching over a work in progress; Kees Van Dongen painting a posing Brigitte Bardot; along with other striking images depicting Rene Magritte, Marc Chagall, Fernando Botero, Joan Miro, Jean Cocteau, Francis Bacon, and more.
This worldwide exhibition has already been to five cities in North America and five in Europe, with Beijing the first stop on the exhibition’s Asia Pacific tour. Revealed by Sofitel will be on display in the lobby of Sofitel Wanda Beijing from September 1 and run through to 20, 2015. Admission to the exhibition is free of charge to guests and the public.
