Picasso began to spend his summer holidays in Antibes Juan-les-Pins in 1920, returning most summers to the Côte d’Azur until the outbreak of war. During those years, he produced paintings and drawings of the villas where he stayed with his family, as well as of bathers on the beach, and many studies for paintings that were ultimately realized in his studio back in Paris. He returned again after the war and showed his affinity for the region in compositions that reflect its classical and mythological past.

M. Pablo’s Holidays accompanies an exhibition of the same name at the Musée Picasso in Antibes, and is composed of seven essays by authoritative writers on the artist. The essays are enhanced by six thematic sections that present the exhibited works.
