Picasso joins the avant-garde. This exhibition includes works produced during the years 1899-1900, in Barcelona. Subject matter ranges from street scenes and landscapes to portraiture, but all of it is evidence of Picasso's interest in breaking rules and trying new techniques. A number of Picasso's famous poster designs are also on display.

The most famous pieces on display include his Harlequin, a portrait of one of his wives, Jacqueline, and the Las Meninas series.
