Tribute to Picasso

6 May > 7 May 2023

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the death of Pablo Picasso, the city of Vallauris Golfe-Juan wishes to pay homage to him through a season which will be entirely dedicated to him and which will celebrate the links, both artistic and human, which have woven between the ancient pottery city and the great artist.

All audiences are invited here. Neophytes and insiders will be able, each in their own way, through the many proposals reserved for them, to honor Picasso, who had chosen this city on the Riviera to find the setting conducive to his experiments and his fertile creativity.

This “Picasso Season” in Vallauris is part of the “Picasso Celebration 1973-2023” Project.
