  Pablo Picasso Paintings Prints and Biography
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.
For Picasso, these fantasies were often of a sexual nature - "Why not the sex organs in place of the eyes, and the eyes between the legs?" he once wondered - and the result is a series of hybrid and often playfully erotic creatures.
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.

Previous studies of Picasso's involvement with the classical have tended to concentrate on the period immediately following the First World War, and to attribute that involvement to both the rise of political conservatism in France and the domesticating influence of the artist's marriage to Olga Koklova.
