Nude reunion

Three of Picasso’s most famous paintings are reunited at London’s Tate Modern this month — the first time they’ve been shown together since (they were created in) 1932


Celebrated for cementing his role at the centre of 20th-century art, three much lauded nude studies of Picasso’s lover, Marie- Thérèse Walter, are finally being reunited at the Tate Modern after having been estranged in private collections for decades. It’s 86 years since Picasso produced: Nude, Green Leaves and Bust; Nude in a Black Armchair; and The Mirror. 1932 was a prolific year for the artist, resulting in such masterpieces as Rest, Sleep, The Dream, and the iconic Girl before a Mirror. Along with these were paintings of Marie-Thérèse Walter, which were created over just five days in March, and shown the same year for the final time before becoming the preserve of private collectors for decades. This is the first solo Picasso show staged at the Tate Modern, bringing together his nudes and all of the above works for the first time, along with his much-loved Nude Woman in a Red Armchair, over 100 sculptures, paintings and works on paper including 13 seminal ink drawings of the crucifixion — much of which has never been exhibited in the UK before.
