Pablo Picasso is renowned for his insatiable curiosity and tireless urge for creativity which often led him to mediums beyond painting. Spanning almost seven decades of the artist’s life, the exhibition celebrates Picasso’s experimentation with drawing, printmaking and ceramics and explores the relationship between these different mediums and the ways in which they fostered his creativity.
