Exhibit: Picasso 1932 - Love, Fame, Tragedy
For an artist as prolific as Picasso who painted countless works across mediums for most of his adult life, it is almost hard to believe that one year could leave to a period of unparalleled creativity.
For Pablo Picasso, who really needs no introduction, that year is 1932 - twelve months in which a passionate love affair led to the works featured in the Love, Fame, Tragedy exhibition at the Tate Modern, the first ever solo Picasso exhibition at the acclaimed gallery. The exhibit showcases over 100 paintings, sculptures and drawings alongside family photographs and rare glimpses into his personal life that will be unfamiliar to many.
The highlight are the extraordinary paintings of his lover Marie-Therese Walter, the subject of that twelve months of passion and, here three paintings of her are exhibited together for the first time since they were created over just five days in March 1932.
A must see exhibition, offering a real insight into a period of passion and inspiration for one of the worlds best known and respected artists.
From now to 9 September 2018 at Tate Modern. From £22 - book online.
