      Picasso Prints: The Vollard Suite

      The British Museum has recently been fortunate enough to acquire the complete Vollard Suite - a set of 100 etchings produced by Picasso between 1930 and 1937. With Picasso arguably being the 20th century's most important artist, this generosity by the Hamish Parker Charitable Trust has put the British Museum in a unique position, offering the ability to display the pieces alongside classical sculptures that Picasso was inspired by. This will be the only complete Vollard Suite held by a public museum in the UK and it will join only a handful of museums in the world which hold a complete set. It will therefore be the first time a complete Vollard Suite has been shown in Britain in the past 50 years. The etchings represent a number of themes including Picasso's fascination with the Minotaur. Further influences seen in the artist's paintings include Rembrandt etchings and Goya prints.
