Picasso Artwork on Display in Sydney

Fans of modernism and post-modernism have a new reason to head to Sydney, where some 150 paintings, drawings and sculptures by Pablo Picasso are taking up most of the ground floor of the Art Gallery of New South Wales. These are "Picasso’s Picassos," personal and revealing works that he kept to shape his own legacy.

Made possible only by the closure of the Musée National Picasso in Paris for renovations, the Gallery is the only venue in Australia on the exhibition’s world tour.

An Australian first, the exhibition showcases seven decades of Pablo Picasso’s art. Best of all: Every phase of the artist's career is represented, including pieces from the Blue, Rose, expressionist, cubist, neoclassical and surrealist periods.

The exhibit will run through March 25. Visit www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au/exhibitions/picasso for more information and tickets.
