On 3 May a landmark exhibition of Pablo Picasso’s work opens at The British Museum. Picasso Prints: The Vollard Suite, an exhibition of Picasso’s most celebrated series of etchings, marks the first time a complete set has been shown in a British public institution. The Vollard Suite comprises 100 etchings produced by Picasso between 1930 and 1937, at a critical juncture in the artist’s career. The prints were made when Picasso was involved in a passionate affair with his muse and model, Marie-Thérèse Walter, whose classical features are a recurrent presence in the series. It is the only complete Vollard Suite held by a public museum in the UK. The exhibition runs until 2 September and admission is free.
