Considered to be one of the most significant shows Tate Modern has ever staged, this monographic exhibition will take visitors on a month by month journey through one of the most pivotal times in Picasso’s life and work. Being described as an extraordinary year by the painter, his art reached a level of unprecedented sensuality, cementing his celebrity status as one of the most influential artist of the early 20th Century.
Love becomes a center point to his creative experience, as 1932 is marked by his relationship to his wife Olga Khokhlova and their 11-year-old son Paulo, as well as his passionate affair with Marie-Thérèse Walter, 28 years his junior.
