Within a representative universe of Pablo Picasso’s life and work, Los Pájaros Muertos (Dead Birds) declaims the constant disappearance of the men who came into his life, the inevitable fate of the characters who accompanied one of the most outstanding men of the 20th century and who, with him, shared both the fruitful and destructive years of that century. Using a pictorial pretext, the piece penetrates an allegorical field of wars, travels and loves. Sex, Art and Death construct an altarpiece of images evocative of the passion with which the painter worked throughout his life.
From Málaga to Mougins, Barcelona to Paris, Los Pájaros Muertos portrays a journey through the years and names which shared the time, cities and cafés with Pablo Picasso throughout the 92 years of his life.
