Picasso and his Women, by Val Woodgate
Talk | The Wallace Collection
Thursday 23 November 2017 - 14:30 until 15:30
Val Woodgate examines Picasso’s work through his relationships with the seven most important women in his life, two of whom he married. His response to each can be seen in the styles he represented them in, from the Rose Period and Cubism of his first great love, to the highly charged, expressive works of later years. Picasso was born in Malaga and spent his formative years in Barcelona, but despite the fact that most of his work was produced in France, he never lost touch with his Spanish roots.
