Picasso: Working on Paper

This exhibition draws together works by Picasso, made throughout his life, which use newspaper as a ground material and as a subject. Early Cubist collages are shown alongside line drawings on broadsheet newspaper pages, with works on photographs and an array of archive material. In this way one can see the mind of the artist at work as he makes use of available resources and plays with the idea of a newspaper. Picasso regularly returned to this process and the exhibition covers the period 1878-1963, essentially Picasso's working life as an artist. The work has not been seen in Ireland before, and some of the pieces and archive items are being shown for the first time anywhere. The exhibition is curated by Anne Baldassari of the Musee Picasso in Paris, which has loaned most of the material. Other works come from the Picasso family and selected Museum collections in Europe.
