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.
The myths around Picasso are stripped away to reveal the man and the artist in his full complexity and richness. You will see him as never before.
