ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – The Salvador Dali Museum in Florida is opening a Pablo Picasso exhibit that includes paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture.

It’s called “Picasso/Dali, Dali/Picasso” and it explores the rivalry and inspiration between the two famous Spanish artists. Dali was a young, adoring fan when he met Picasso in Paris in 1926, by which time the older artist had claimed his fame. The exhibit opens Saturday and runs through Feb. 15, 2015.

The exhibit then will travel to the Museu Picasso in Barcelona, Spain for exhibition March 19-June 28, 2015.

The Picasso works in the exhibition came from several museums around the world and individuals, including the Picasso family.
