The exhibition, produced by Fundación MAPFRE, has only been made possible thanks to the support of more than seventy lenders who have collaborated with the show. Notable among them are the Musée d'Orsay, Musée National Picasso-Paris, the Musée Matisse Nice, the Centre Georges Pompidou, the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, the Kunstmuseum Winterthur, the Columbus Museum of Art and the Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Trento and Rovereto . Also essential was the generosity and extraordinary willingness of private collectors to lend works of exceptional quality.

This exhibition forms part of the international project Picasso-Mediterranean, an initiative of the Musée National Picasso-Paris. This program of exhibitions, activities and scientific exchanges runs from 2017 to 2019 and counts on the participation of over seventy international institutions:
