Picasso: Paper and Clay
17 March – 24 June 2018
Go beyond the paintings and explore Picasso’s inventiveness and artistry on paper and in clay.
Picasso worked on paper throughout his life, making drawings and prints in their own right or using them to experiment and develop his ideas.
This exhibition showcases drawings from throughout his career, from a pastel sketch he produced as a teenager through to a dexterous ink drawing created at the age of 89.
Meanwhile, a visit to a French pottery exhibition in 1946 sparked a lifelong love of ceramics and over 4,000 different creations.
With loans from the New Walk Museum in Leicester, the V&A and private collections, this exhibition explores how Picasso enjoyed pushing the boundaries just as much in drawing, printmaking and ceramics as in painting.
