Picasso Art And Africa
A world-first art exhibition of Pablo Picasso's works and the "magical" African masks and sculptures that influenced him opens in Johannesburg on Friday. A collection of 84 original Picasso paintings and sculptures alongside 29 African art objects will be on display at the Standard Bank Art Gallery in downtown Johannesburg for five weeks. This is a first. Nowhere else in the world has there been an exhibition showing the relation between Picasso's work and African art.
