Picasso and Paper

16 July — 2 August 2020

We are now open to Friends and will be reopening for the public on 16 July with a last chance to see ‘Picasso and Paper’ – our major exhibition spanning the artist’s 80-year career and featuring 300 works, including studies for ‘Guernica’ and a 4.8-metre-wide collage.

For Picasso, paper was both a tool to explore his ideas and a material with limitless possibilities. He experimented with everything from newsprint and napkins to decorative wallpaper. He spent decades investigating printmaking techniques, sourcing rare and antique paper from as far as Japan – and all without losing his compulsion to draw on every last scrap
