On a drizzling day of July 15, the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) held its 3rd members and partners activity in 2016—“Picasso Walks into China—A Dialogue with the Greatest Artists” Tour, which was supported by the Riverside Group, a partner of BFA. Mr. Zhou Wenzhong, Secretary General of the BFA and Mr. Li Zhe, Chairman of Riverside Group, delivered welcome remarks to the 50 representatives of BFA members and partners.

The exhibition displayed 83 artworks created by Pablo Picasso in the early, middle and later stages of his life, covering five art forms ranging from paintings, print works, drawings, sculptures and ceramics. As the most creative and influential modern artist from the west, Picasso was full of admiration for Qi Baishi, one of the most prominent artists in the east. The exhibition also featured an area dedicated to the original pieces of Qi Baishi—When Picasso Encounters Qi Baishi. The last concurrent show of the works of the two greatest artists took place 60 years ago.

The activity provided an exclusive social platform. The BFA members and partners were impressed by the state-of-the-art facility, the great exhibits, the invaluable experience and high quality services. An outdoor cocktail party was held at the end of the tour, capping the event in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere.
