Picasso in Britain

LONDON’S Tate Britain is proud to announce their upcoming exhibition as the first ever to explore Pablo Picasso’s lifelong connections with the UK. The exhibition celebrates Picasso’s work in a way that unveils its significance to British art history, exploring the artist’s evolving critical reputation in Britain as well as how British artists responded to his work.

The display will consist of more than 150 works from major worldwide collections both public and private. The pieces have been selected to portray Picasso’s growing popularity amongst the British public, and the acceptance of him as a figure of controversy and celebrity. The display will trace how Picasso’s work was initially exhibited and collected in the UK during his lifetime, whilst also demonstrating his crucial impact on twentieth century modernism, specifically through the works of Duncan Grant, Wyndham Lewis, Ben Nicholson, Henry Moore, Francis Bacon, Graham Sutherland and David Hockney.

The paintings on show are set to include one that is symbolic of Picasso’s affection for England, The Three Dancers (1925), which the Tate acquired from the artist after his 1960 exhibition.

Tate Britain is open daily 10am – 6pm (10pm Fridays), admission free. Picasso and Modern British Art runs from 15 February – 15 July, admission is ticketed
