Picasso on Paper
London's Omer Tiroche gallery is offering us an intimate look into the world of Pablo Picasso with their 30+ piece retrospective of the 20th century artist's illustrations from the early 1900's through his last years. The exhibition, entitled Picasso on Paper, is an impressive step in the gallery's rebranding shift into modern and contemporary art and is set to coincide with the National Portrait Gallery’s exhibition Picasso Portraits. An intimate look at Picasso's life through the tip of his pencil, the exhibition places the importance of paper in how his ideas were shaped. Known for his incessant sketching on every paper surface he could get his hands on from café receipts to pages torn from books, the exhibition also features more calculated drawings, studies of artist and model–a particular series through which Picasso came to terms with the death of his friend, Matisse–watercolours, and more rarely seen works that offer us a glimpse into the melancholy and psyche of this timeless artist.
