Many thanks to Pernod Absinthe for supporting the arts and believing in independent and emerging voices in the arts.
Long a part of the arts community, Pernod and absinthe served as an inspiration to Picasso during his cubist period as demonstrated in his important works “Bouteille de Pernod et verre” (1912) and “Glass of Absinthe” (1914). Today, Pernod continues to support the arts in the 21st Century.
