Event Short Description

Picasso in Britain. Art, politics & Outcry. Kate Aspinall.

Event Information

Pablo Picasso had a tumultuous relationship with Britain over the course of his life, related to both his personal politics and the shock of his art. This hour-long talk examines the lasting effects of Picasso on Britain, looking not only at the artist’s two visits to England (1919 and 1950) but also the turning point that the display of his monumental Guernica (1937) in 1938-9 precipitated for British artists. This relationship – and the surrounding public controversies – reveal a multitude of fascinating connections between the most prolific artist of the twentieth century and a country on the verge of its global artistic renaissance.
