1932 was an intensely creative period in the life of the 20th century’s most influential artist.
This is the first ever solo Pablo Picasso exhibition at Tate Modern. It will bring you face-to-face with more than 100 paintings, sculptures and drawings, mixed with family photographs and rare glimpses into his personal life.
Three of his extraordinary paintings featuring his lover Marie-Thérèse Walter are shown together for the first time since they were created over a period of just five days in March 1932.
The myths around Picasso will be stripped away to reveal the man and the artist in his full complexity and richness. You will see him as never before.
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.
Listen as curators Achim Borchardt-Hume and Nancy Ireson guide you through Picasso’s ‘year of wonders’, joined by paintings conservator Annette King and cultural historian Andrew Hussey. Pick up from the exhibition entrance.
