By LLM Reporters on 18th August 2019

One of the world’s most exclusive hotels The Aman Sveti Stefan in Montenegro, is running a one-of-a-kind exhibition displaying works by Picasso, Chagall and Miró.

Originally booked for the month of June, the exhibition has now been extended to run through August and into September due to demand. Consisting of original works by Picasso, Chagall and Miró, more than 60 original lithographs will be on display in Villa Miločer on the mainland, in the Pasticceria and Cigar Room on the island’s Piazza, and within Arva, the island’s elegant Italian restaurant.

Titled “Les Ateliers: Picasso, Chagrall, Miró”, the exhibition represents a world first in bringing together lithographs from these three modern and surrealist artists. Works include Picasso’s intriguing ‘Deux Femmes’, Chagall’s poignant ‘Les Amoureux’ and Miró’s enigmatic ‘Le Lezard aux Plumes d’Or’ series. This exhibition was curated to complement the spaces in which they are situated, and will be on show to the Sveti Stefan guests only.

With its pink sandy beaches, 15th-century island village, 1930’s mainland estate and sublime Aman Spa, Aman Sveti Stefan is a masterpiece with universal appeal. Running from July to September this year, the resort’s one-of-a-kind art exhibition will feature masterpieces throughout the property.
