Suite Vollard Engravings

February 16 - April 18, 2010

Picasso: Suite Vollard Engravings exhibition presented renowned Spanish artist Pablo Picasso’s most important engraving series from the first half of the 20th century. The engravings were a result of the collaboration between Picasso and his close friend, an ardent admirer of his work, an extraordinary editor and also a famous art dealer of the period, Ambroise Vollard. 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.

Picasso: Suite Vollard, Engravings exhibition, one of the most marvellous series of engravings of all times belonging to the Fundación MAPFRE collection, was a collaboration between the Pera Museum, Fundación MAPFRE and Instituto Cervantes.

Józef Brandt harboured a fascination for the history of 17th century Poland, and his favourite themes included ballistic scenes and genre scenes before and after the battle proper –all and sundry marches, returns, supply trains, billets and encampments, patrols, and similar motifs illustrating the drudgery of warfare outside of its culminating moments.
