Picasso érotique opens, appropriately enough, with an installation evoking a fin-de-siècle brothel - the setting both for many of the painter's earliest sexual exploits and for his first large body of erotic drawings.

Picasso érotique is organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Musée national Picasso and the Réunion des musées nationaux in co-production with the Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume, Paris, and the Museu Picasso, Barcelona.
