London has become renowned for its affair with the arts, bringing the best exhibitions to some of the world’s greatest museums. The Tate Britain promises to upkeep this tradition; showcasing work influenced by the greatest artist of them all, Pablo Picasso.
The ‘Picasso and Britain’ exhibition investigates the Spanish genius’ impact on British modernism, through the works of seven British artists such as Francis Bacon, Henry Moore and David Hockney, along with around 70 unique Picasso pieces. Some of their works will be shown next to the original works, allowing viewers to see the similarities in style and texture between from two pieces.
Tate Britain is hoping for the same sort of interest from the last Picasso exhibition back in 1960, where over 460,000 people including members of the royal family visited to admire the work of the artist.
