The EY Exhibition Picasso 1932 – Love, Fame, Tragedy is one of the most significant shows the gallery has ever staged. Taking visitors on a month-by-month journey through 1932, a time so pivotal in Picasso’s life and work that it has been called his ‘year of wonders’. More than 100 outstanding paintings, sculptures and works on paper demonstrate his prolific and restlessly inventive character. They strip away common myths to reveal the man and the artist in his full complexity and richness.

1932 was an extraordinary year for Picasso, even by his own standards. His paintings reached a new level of sensuality and he cemented his celebrity status as the most influential artist of the early 20th century. Over the course of this year he created some of his best loved works, from confident colour-saturated portraits to surrealist drawings, developing ideas from the voluptuous sculptures he had made at his newly acquired country estate.

The exhibition offers an unique opportunity to view some of the most important works Picasso ever made. It includes three dazzling paintings featuring the artist’s lover Marie-Thérèse Walter. Made over the course of only five days Nude, Green Leaves and Bust, Nude in a Black Armchair and The Mirror, have not been shown together since they were created in 1932. For the first time in 85 years they are reunited alongside iconic works such as Girl Before a Mirror, Rest, Sleep, The Dream and many more.

Curated by Achim Borchardt-Hume, Director of Exhibitions with Nancy Ireson, Curator, International Art, Laura Bruni and Juliette Rizzi, Assistant Curators, Tate Modern.

The exhibition is organised by Tate Modern in collaboration with Musée national Picasso-Paris where it will be curated by Laurence Madeline, Curator.
