In addition to works borrowed from Museo Casa Natal Picasso (Picasso's Birthplace Museum) in Malaga, the exhibition also includes selected works by the artist from the collections of the National Museum in Warsaw, including works donated to the National Museum in Warsaw by Picasso himself when he visited Poland in 1948. The exhibition was divided into four sections: the artist's reflections on beauty, his fascination with mythological figures, passion for ceramics and Polish accents in his work.
