Art ART ROUND UP: and exhibition news
Tate Modern, London Showing from: 8 March – 9 September 2018
In March 2018 Tate Modern will stage its first ever solo exhibition of Pablo Picasso’s work, one of the most significant shows the gallery has ever staged. The EY Exhibition: Picasso
1932 – Love, Fame, Tragedy will take visitors on a month-bymonth 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 will demonstrate his prolific and restlessly inventive character. They will strip away common myths to reveal the man and the artist in his full complexity and richness.
1932 was a time of invention and reflection. Having recently turned 50, in collaboration with Christian Zervos, Picasso embarked on the first volume of what remains the most ambitious catalogue of an artist’s work ever made, listing more than 16,000 paintings and drawings. His paintings also reached a new level of sensuality and he cemented his celebrity status as the most influential artist of the early 20th century.
Highlights will include Girl before a Mirror, a signature painting that rarely leaves The Museum of Modern Art, and the legendary The Dream, a virtuoso masterpiece depicting the artist’s muse in dreamy abandon, which has never been exhibited in the UK before.
