The central theme of the exhibition is the bullfight, though in reality it is the areas wine, thus linking the great Picasso with the great wines: wine as metonym of the region, wine as symbol of the intimate friendship between Bos and the artist.
The exhibition consists of 26 aquatint etchings on the theme of the bullfight, a rare oil on paper, and the plans for the artists Plaza de Toros, the sole architectual work, signed by Picaso in collaboration with the architect Bonet and Luis Dominguin. In addition to these priceless works there are two original pieces, highly rare in their peculiarity: two terracotta amphorae, created by Picasso to be used by the artist at table with his friends as they enjoyed the fine wines.
The exhibits form a continuity with the narration and recollections of one who had the privilege of knowing Picasso personally, forimng a close friendship with him: the proprieter of the exhibits Luisa Bos.
