 Archives | Last updated date : 05/01/2021

From the Woman Seated on the Beach, a painting by Picasso kept at the Musée des Beaux-Arts  (Museum of Fine Arts), the idea came for an exhibition on the theme of the bather, which often appears in the artist’s work. 

The museum presents the works of several painters who influenced Picasso, such as Ingres and Renoir, as well as of artists who Picasso inspired in turn, such as Francis Bacon and Henry Moore.

The exhibition, organised jointly with the Musée National Picasso-Paris, presents 150 works from major collections in Europe and the United States, as well as from the archives, and photos of Picasso and his family on holiday by the seaside. 

Not to be missed! 

Admission to the Musée des Beaux-Arts and its exhibition is included in the Lyon City Card.


Isabelle, our editor born and bred in Lyon! She was born in Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon in fact, studied in Lyon and now lives here. Territorial? Absolutely not! She loves travelling, widening her horizons, meeting new people and enjoys a change of scenery (without snow, if possible). Isabelle is curious and a people person, two attributes that often go hand in hand! Her favourite colour is green and her motto "a day without laughter is a day wasted!"
