ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Pablo Picasso's 'The Vollard Suite' is a set of one hundred etchings, engravings and aquatints created by the artist in the 1930s and named after Ambroise Vollard, his sometime art dealer and publisher. It contains several themes that were close to Picasso's heart – principally the classically derived subjects of the Minotaur (the man–beast) and Pygmalion (the artist obsessed with his model).
