Picasso Portraits At The National Portrait Gallery
THURSDAY 6TH OCTOBER 2016 - SUNDAY 5TH FEBRUARY 2017

Picasso’s portraits epitomise the astonishing variety and innovation of his art. This major exhibition of over eighty works focuses on the artist’s portrayal of family, friends and lovers and reveals his creative processes as he moved freely between drawing from life, humorous caricature and expressive painting from memory.

On display will be portraits from all periods of Picasso’s career and in all media, from the realist paintings of his boyhood to his later ultra-spontaneous canvases. The works on show will range from celebrated masterpieces loaned by international institutions to works in private collections being shown in the United Kingdom for the first time.

Exhibition co-organised by the National Portrait Gallery, London and the Museum Picasso, Barcelona.
