French President Emmanuel Macron has inaugurated a major Picasso exhibition in Paris, focusing on one key year in the Spanish master’s art and life.

After visiting the show for an hour and a half with his wife Brigitte, Macron said he likes in Picasso’s paintings a “great sensuality” and at the same time a “political meaning” especially in the years leading up to World War II.

The “Picasso 1932. Erotic Year” show displays many portraits of Picasso’s mistress Marie-Therese Walter -including a famous masterpiece, “The Dream.”

The exhibition “Picasso 1932. Erotic Year” is being presented at Picasso National Museum in Paris and co-organized with the Tate Modern in London. It will run from Oct. 10 to Feb. 11.
