  • Sol Felpeto exhibits “Picasso”: Minou was a French stray cat that Picasso adopted during a period of his very “blue” life in which he was depressed and ruined. The story tells that the painter had to return the cat to the street since he could not feed him. Minou found himself once again wandering around Montmartre and had the fortune to find a sausage. Without hesitation, he returned to his old master’s house to share the meal with him. This is how Sol Felpeto decides to recreate the most famous works of Picasso by reinterpreting the characters with his cat, Minou, returning the protagonism that has never been recognised, the tender bond that united the artist and the animal. Today is the opening, confirm attendance by writing an email to solfelpetopress@gmail.com.
    Sol Felpeto, Imagin Café, Calle de Pelayo 11, metro Universidad (L1 and L2).
