An exhibition of Picasso's works from 1935 to 1945 goes on display at the National Gallery of Victoria today. Hundred of paintings, etchings and photos by the Spanish artist can be viewed until the first week of October. It is the largest Picasso collection ever shown outside Europe.
The exhibition focuses on the personal and artistic relationship between Picasso and his lover, french photographer Dora Maar.
The gallery's director, Gerard Vaughan, has described it as one of the great exhibitions. "I think the one with Dora Maar was very special and rather different," he said. "He was obsessed with her and she was obsessed with him and the exhibition is full of their portraits of each other. "I think that in itself is absolutely fascinating."
This is a "DO NOT MISS" for Art Lovers.
