Picasso had a love of words, writing, poetry and language from a young age. His friend André Breton enshrined this side of Picasso's personality in 1935 with a text published in Cahiers d’Art. This painting genius acknowledged that “All the arts are ultimately one and the same. One can write a painting with words just as one can paint sensations in a poem.” The temporary exhibition entitled Picasso Poeta reveals the importance of poetry writing to his creative career and introduces us to his manuscripts and his sources, the connection between his writings and paintings and, above all, his ingenuity as a poet.
