See Picasso in a new light at the world-premiere Melbourne Winter Masterpieces® 2022 exhibition, The Picasso Century.

By exploring Picasso’s career through his artistic and intellectual engagement with his peers, the exhibition provides a unique insight into the artistic legacy of one of the 20th century’s most influential and celebrated artists, as well as the community of artists from which he emerged. See works by many of the artists with whom he intersected throughout his career, including Dorothea Tanning, Françoise Gilot, Georges Braque, Salvador Dalí, Dora Maar, Henri Matisse, and more.

Curated by noted scholar of 20th century art Didier Ottinger, Deputy Director of the Musée national d’art moderne, Centre Pompidou, Paris, The Picasso Century examines the diverse influences, encounters and collaborative relationships that steered Picasso through many distinct artistic periods, such as his Blue Period, Cubism and Surrealism, and draws lines between Picasso’s famous creations and the world around him.
