Pablo Picasso's masterpieces will tour Chengdu, the provincial capital of Sichuan, from Feb 28 to May 1, after its China debut in Shanghai in October.
On view will be 56 oil works and sculptures by Picasso, with 50 photos that chronicle his artistic career. A documentary film about him will be screened during the exhibition.
Also, ink masterpieces by artist Zhang Daqian (1899-1983), whose home city is Neijiang, Sichuan province, will be featured alongside Picasso's works.
The two maestros met and forged a friendship half a century ago in Paris.
