Move over Vincent, it’s Pablo’s turn to show some work at the Dali because “Picasso and the Allure of the South” is headed to St. Petersburg’s Dalí Museum early next year.

Starting Jan. 29, over 70 of Pablo Picasso’s paintings, drawings and collages—many never seen in the U.S. before—will be on exhibit until May 22.

“In partnership with the incomparable Musée national Picasso-Paris, The Dalí is proud to share this far-reaching exploration of the gravitational pull of southern Europe,” Dr. Hank Hine, The Dali’s Executive Director, wrote in a release.

In addition to the art, a selection of historical photographs will give viewers a glimpse into the life of the cubist/surrealist/expressionist Spanish painter and sculptor. 

The Dalí—located at 1 Dalí Blvd. in downtown St. Pete—is the only venue where these pieces will be shown outside of their home in Paris. Included in the exhibition is “Musicien,” a 1972 piece Picasso completed one year before he died.

“Picasso and the Allure of the South” arrives at the Dalí after the “Van Gogh Alive” exhibit wrapped up an extended stay at the St. Petersburg museum, selling out almost daily. More information on Picasso and the Allure of the South,” showing at St. Petersburg’s Dalí Museum from Jan. 29-May 22, 2021 is available via thedali.org.
