An exhibition showing 52 works of art by Picasso, his friends and teachers (Picasso, Amigos y Maestros) opened last week at Vélez-Málaga's contemporary arts centre (CAC).

As well as 19 paintings, ceramics and lithographs by the artist himself, the exhibition also offers the opportunity for visitors to see works by other famous artists including Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, Georges Braque, Marc Chagall and Foujita.

The exhibition is spread over four rooms and a life- size painting of Picasso, by Malaga artist Francisco Rodríguez, welcomes visitors at the entrance. The 19 Picassos can be found in room one, while room two is dedicated to works by the artist's closest friends, including eight works by Dalí.

Miró, Chagall and Braque occupy room three and room four is given over the masters that acted as teachers to Picasso.

Until 23 November the opening times are subject to the current restrictions. From Tuesday to Friday it is open from 9am to 3pm and on Saturday and Sunday it is open from 9am to 2pm. The museum is closed on Mondays. Timings may change after that date.

The exhibition runs until 7 February 2021.
