The EY Exhibition Picasso 1932 convened under the title “Love, Fame and Tragedy,” will open to public (free entry for members) at London’s Tate Modern The Eyal Ofer Galleries from March 8 through to September 9, 2018.

The EY Exhibition: Picasso 1932 – Love, Fame, Tragedy

Organised by the museum in partnership with Musée national Picasso-Paris, journey through the exhibition halls and discover Picasso’s “Year of Wonders” highlighting The dream (Le Revel) 1932, Nude in a Black Armchair (Nu au fauteuil noir) 1932, Nude Woman in a Red Armchair (Femme nue dans un fauteuil rouge) 1932 Tate, Nude, Green Leaves and Bust (Femme nue, fueilles at buste) amongst other from the artist’s private 1932 collection.

According to Tate Modern, “The 1932 has been quite an intensive period in the life of the 20th century’s most influential artist. Three of his extraordinary paintings featuring his lover Marie-Thérèse Walter are shown together for the first time since they were created over a period of just five days in March 1932. The myths around Picasso will be stripped away to reveal the man and the artist in his full complexity and richness. You will see him as never before.”
