Olga pensativa, 1923.
Maternidad, 1921 - Paulo vestido de arlequín, 1924 - Escena báquica con Minotauro, 1933.

Until June 2, the Picasso Malaga Museum will present the figure and the story of Russian dancer Olga Khokhlova, Pablo Picasso's first wife, with whom the painter from Malaga had a complex and passionate love story. This is attested by nearly three hundred and fifty objects - paintings, works on paper, photography, letters, documentation and films - that make up the exhibition, which was previously seen at the Picasso Paris National Museum and at the Pushkin Museum in Moscow.

The Olga Picasso exhibition comes up from the letters and photographs found in the trunk belonging to Bernard Ruiz-Picasso´s grandmother, co-president of the “Almine and Bernard Ruiz-Picasso for Art” Foundation (FABA), and president of the Executive Council and member of the Board of Picasso Malaga Museum.

Now, this legacy - the only personal goods that she preserved after separation - has allowed us to contextualize some aspects of Picasso's work during his life with Olga (1917-1935) and, at the same time, recreate a personal and artistic history that runs parallel to another political and social history.
