Picasso The Vollard Suite

Exhibition and Shows

9 Jun 2018 to 24 Sep 2018

Pablo Picasso’s Vollard Suite is regarded as one of the greatest print suites ever made, and perhaps the most enigmatic and famous of the twentieth century. The National Gallery of Australia is one of the few cultural institutions in the world to hold the complete set of 100 engraved prints.

Pablo Picasso’s trip to the great cultural and artistic centres of Rome, Naples and Florence had a profound effect on the course of his work during the 1920s and 1930s, a period that saw him embrace classical and mythological themes and imagery, culminating in the one hundred etchings in the Vollard suite 1930–37.

Picasso aligned his creativity and sexuality with the mythical figure of the Minotaur, memorialising his connection to ‘the untameable beast’ in The Vollard Suite. This collection provides intimate insight into the mind of the 20th century’s most celebrated and influential modern artist, capturing his reflections on ambition, immortality, fallibility, vitality, and obsession.
