Since last Friday, the exhibition Picasso, la tauromaquia, which includes more than thirty works by the Malaga painter and other 20th-century artists such as Luis Gordillo, Eduardo Arroyo, the American Man Ray and the visual artists Costus, has been open to the public at the Convent of Santo Domingo. This cultural exhibition will be open to the public until January 5, 2025.

The bulk of the exhibition is made up of 26 aquatints with original texts by the creator of Guernica. Also on display is the painting Bust of a Woman in a Yellow Blouse and photographs by Georgette Chadourne, which reflect snapshots of the painter’s life.

The main objective of this proposal is to review the extensive links that Picasso had with the world of bullfighting. The central theme of the exhibition is bullfighting and is made up of funds donated by the Suñol Foundation, a private non-profit organisation based in Barcelona. It includes works in aquatints, collages, photographs of the illustrious Malaga artist and even the original folder where he kept his works and seeks to unify pictorial art with the world of bullfighting.

The mayor, María de la Paz Fernández, thanked the Provincial Council for its collaboration, which, together with Turismo Costa del Sol, has sponsored this initiative, as well as the Junta de Andalucía and the La Melonera wineries for supporting an event of this magnitude. Admission to the exhibition is free for the people of Ronda and costs five euros for visitors.
