 Picasso 1932 - Love, Fame, Tragedy

Tuesday 28 August

1932 was a year of extraordinary creative energy and artistic achievement for Picasso.   He was 50 years old, married with a child but deep in an affair with Marie Therese Walter whom he had met 5 years earlier when she was only 17 and who became his muse and inspiration.  Politically there was turbulence in Spain and depression in America.

 In March within 12 days he produced 7 quite extraordinary legendary paintings, 6 of which will be on display.  Drawing on private collections and the world’s leading institutions, more than 100 paintings, sculptures and works on paper produced during 1932 will be shown in this landmark exhibition. 

 1932 was truly ‘a year of wonders’.
