Picasso, Pablo - National Gallery of Canada

Pablo Picasso: Man and Beast

Through his work, Pablo Picasso was instrumental in shaping the art of the twentieth century. Although perhaps best known for his Cubist paintings, 

was also a skilled printmaker, exploring myriad ideas and influences in virtually every known technique from intaglio to lithography. The 100 etchings and drypoints in The Vollard Suite are collectively considered one of his printmaking masterworks, and constitute one of the treasures of the national collection. (29.04.2016 - 05.09.2016) Acquired in 1957, the entire Suite is being presented in Ottawa for the first time in nearly sixty years. Exploring the tension between man and beast that often characterized Picasso and his work, The Vollard Suiterepresents both the civilizing nature of art, and a provocative yet quintessential representation of Picasso’s “beast within.” (Text: National Gallery of Canada)
