Today my family and I went to the Picasso & Giacometti Exhibition in the Old Fire Station here in Qatar. I was very excited to go as I’m an art student and I enjoy looking at peoples artwork. Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) and Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) are two well-known artists from the twentieth century. The exhibition shows their work and also shows the research of the unknown relationship between the two artists. I took quite a lot of pictures of both of their work, but narrowed it down to my favourites.
