Picasso and Modern British Art opens at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
The first exhibition to explore Pablo Picasso’s lifelong connections with Britain is the highlight of this year’s Festival programme at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. Picasso & Modern British Art brings together 150 works from major public and private collections around the world, including some 60 outstanding paintings, drawings and prints by Picasso. This stunning exhibition, which has been organised in partnership with Tate Britain, where it was shown to great acclaim this spring, traces the evolution of the artists’ critical reputation in Britain, and demonstrates his profound influence on British artists, through the example of major figures such as Francis Bacon and Henry Moore.
