This is a unique and exciting opportunity to see rare and previously unseen works by the celebrated Giacometti, an artist who has been extensively written about, linked to the Surrealist movement, and yet still somehow overshadowed.

Portraits of an Artist: Pablo Picasso

Picasso by Juan Gris

He was the Minotaur, the playboy of his era, he made the rules to break the rules, he was selfish yet a genius, he had no set style but a thousand styles, he was not Pablo, only Picasso. Pablo Ruiz y Picasso (aka Pablo Picasso) was born in Málaga, Spain on October 25, 1881. A child prodigy, at 20 years old Picasso left Spain for Paris to become a distinguished artist. For Picasso, to succeed in Paris would be to conquer the world.
