      For the 50th anniversary of Pablo Picasso's death, 50 contemporary artists who were asked to participate in this exhibition, each with their own style, technique and sensitivity, have expressed what inspired them by this immense personality.

      The link between Barbizon and Pablo Picasso to the history of painting is further accentuated by the fact that the artist stayed in Barbizon on several occasions in 1942, and more precisely in the Bouvard family boarding house, which later became the "Manoir Saint-Hérem". The curators of this exhibition are Jean-Michel Gout-Werner, an art market professional, and Jacques Simonin, a passionate collector, both of whom were already behind the organisation of the exhibition "L'Angélus a 150 ans", which also took place in Barbizon in 2010.

      Their long association with the contemporary art world, their proximity to many artists and their knowledge of their work, led to the enthusiastic participation of some fifty of them. Some of them have confronted the Picasso myth with a work specially conceived for the exhibition, while others are presenting older work.
