#Picasso and the South (from article http://artdaily.com/news/108192/Museo-Picasso-M-laga-opens-the-exhibition–Picasso-s-South–Andalusian-References-#.W7y7TvZFyUk)

Picasso’s influence and contribution to the history of #20th-century art is undeniable.  The exhibition uses several premises to support the idea that Picasso never ceased to be interested in the origins and traditions of painting, in much the same way as his migrancy bound him emotionally to his homeland, never shedding his loyalty to his cultural ties: #Málaga, #Andalusia and #Spain were all part of his “southernness”, and not just in artistic terms.

DIEGO Voci, an #artist who also thrived in the “South“;  #Andalusia region and connected deeply with the people.  Helga Voci (widow of DIEGO Voci (VOH-chee) shares in writing from her #memories….“So we decided to go to Spain in October 1961. We took the car and went southward, stopped in several cities and after about 1 month we arrived in the Andalusia region in a very beautiful little fishing village called #Almunecar. This was an artist`s colony, all kind of artists from different countries.
We stayed until January 1962. We had a beautiful and very interesting time with long discussions, Diego also made paintings and drawings but he never kept anything, when the painting was finished he was not interested anymore and made presents to friends. He was very popular among the Spanish people also the higher class and he felt wonderful.”
