The exhibition also offers an unprecedented dialogue between Ricciotti and one of the greatest painters of the 20th century. Ricciotti was inspired to create this spectacular scenography from the paper sculptures Picasso made for his children. The paintings, projected onto nine full-blown origami-style structures, give a novel perspective on the Spaniard's work.

Through the artistic approach of Image Totale, designed by Mauger and Baron, the exhibition immerses viewers into the heart of the paintings by allowing guests to explore the paintings' details and fully experience the power of his work. Imagine Picasso pays tribute to the genius and the freedom of his creations.

Spanning an impressive nearly eight-decade career, he proved to be one of the most prolific creative geniuses in history by producing some 65,000 pieces of artwork—paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, and ceramics. Eminently notorious, Picasso is more than a household name as an artist who also became a famous global brand.
