Madrid • At the Thyssen-Bornemisza a unique exhibition dedicated to Chanel and Picasso
The exhibition traces the experiences that the painter and the fashion designer shared between 1915 and 1925
The meeting took place in 1917 in Paris thanks to Jean-Cocteau. She was a model of class and elegance, while he was a committed avant-gardist. She is considered a master of dressing the world, while he was a master at laying it bare. There is almost a whiff of heresy in the juxtaposition of Coco Chanel and Pablo Picasso.
