LONDON—1932 was an intensely creative period in the life of the 20th century’s most influential artist.  Tate Modern will hold the first ever solo Pablo Picasso exhibition from 8 March to 9 September 2018.

The exhibition will bring viewers face-to-face with more than 100 paintings, sculptures and drawings, mixed with family photographs and rare glimpses into Picasso’s personal life.

Three of his extraordinary paintings featuring his lover Marie-Thérèse Walter are shown together for the first time since they were created over a period of just five days in March 1932.

The myths around Picasso will be stripped away to reveal the man and the artist in his full complexity and richness. You will see him as never before.
