Big-name modern artists on show in London, Paris and Wolverhampton

Icons of modern art from the 19th and 20th centuries are the stars of new exhibitions within easy reach this season…

Art for autumn


The National Portrait Gallery is set for an autumn blockbuster, with an exhibition about a man who often took the concept of a portrait to its extremes. Pablo Picasso’s artistic career spanned almost eight decades, and productive ones at that. From a body of works that numbers in the tens of thousands, the NPG’s curators have picked over 80 by the Spanish artist. Many have been lent by the Museu Picasso in Barcelona, and plenty are making their first ever trip to the UK. Picasso avoided commissions, and his sitters were his friends, relatives and frequently himself, whether as a floppy-haired teenager in 1896, or shown as something close to an Easter Island statue in 1972 – the year before his death. In a similar vein, his first wife Olga is pictured in sober realist style in 1923, and translated into curves and angles 12 years later (pictured above).
