Picasso 1932—Love, Fame, Tragedy

Tate Modern, 8th March to 9th September

In January 1932, Pablo Picasso, then 50, painted The Dream, a voluptuous portrait of his young lover, Marie-Thérèse Walter. This magnificent, radical painting, never before exhibited in the UK, launched a year of spectacular productivity, as Picasso juggled caring for his wife and son with his passionate affair. This is Tate Modern’s first ever solo Picasso show—a month-bymonth journey through this pivotal year.

Tacita Dean

Portrait: National Portrait Gallery, 15th March to 28th May; Still Life: National Gallery, 15th March to 28th May; Landscape: Royal Academy, 19th May to 12th August

In an unusual display of collegiality, three major London arts institutions are honouring Tacita Dean. A Turner Prize nominee in 1998, Dean transfixed visitors to Tate Modern in 2011 with her Turbine Hall installation, Film. The NPG will show some of Dean’s experimental filmed portraits of artists; at the National Gallery she will curate the exhibition, Still Life, including new work of her own, and the Royal Academy will focus on her fascination with landscape.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s March issue: A series of writers turn their thoughts to the developing war over words in the UK and the US. Lionel Shriver, Afua Hirsch, Simon Lancaster, Hugh Tomlinson, Tom Clark and two students ask if free expression is truly compromised? What’s really going on in our universities? And what do voters think? Elsewhere in the issue: Michael Ignatieff questions why today’s left-wing leaders can’t live up to the high mark set by FDR, Sameer Rahim shows how western powers have been trying to dictate what Islam should be, and Mary Beard asks “How do we look?” as our perceptions of what is beautiful have changes over the centuries.
