Picasso: Suite Vollard Engravings exhibition presented renowned Spanish artist Pablo Picasso’s most important engraving series from the first half of the 20th century.

Picasso’s loves; the model and the sculptor, nudity, portraiture and different mythological themes appear in these engravings where not only the topics but also the style and the technique provide insight into the artist’s creative universe of the time, the 1930s; when he was at the height of his artistic production.
