Organizers of the first exhibition of Pablo Picasso in Bulgaria “I don’t seek. I find” announced that the exhibition can be seen for free several days before it officially closes in the National gallery for foreign art in Sofia. The exhibition will be free for visitors on March 13th, 14th and 15th.
The exposition includes 71 original works of Picasso, 11 ceramic copies and 24 photographs of him, shot by Lucien Klerg. They are all in one place for the first time in the world. The exhibition broke several records of cultural life in Bulgaria. It topped the rankings for most expensively insured exhibition in Bulgaria so far, with milllions of euro providing for each picture.
“I don’t seek, I find: Pablo Picasso” has also been seen by a record setting number of people. For the three months since the beginning of the exhibition, it was visited by 42 254 people. Organizers expect this number to reach 50 000 by the official end of the exhibition on March 15th.
