Picasso: The Vollard Suite

Exhibition and Shows

17 Nov 2018 to 3 Feb 2019

Art Gallery of South Australia

Exhibition Season: 17 November 2018 to 3 February 2019

The Vollard Suite is Pablo Picasso’s most celebrated series of etchings. The suite takes its name from Modern art dealer and print publisher Ambroise Vollard, who gave Picasso his first Paris exhibition in 1901. Vollard commissioned Picasso to make the series of etchings in exchange for a selection of French Impressionist paintings from his private collection.

This National Gallery of Australia touring exhibition explores the inner musings of the most famous and influential artist of the twentieth century through 100 etchings produced over a 7-year period from 1930 to 1937.

The film Blood of a Poet (1930) by Picasso’s friend and collaborator, Jean Cocteau, will be screened alongside the exhibition and for the aspiring ‘mini-Picasso’ Gallery 11 will be transformed into a free and accessible Drawing Room.
