Picasso and Paper

Royal Academy of Arts, London

Until 13 April 2020

Pablo Picasso may have died nearly 50 years ago, but he broke so many artistic boundaries that there is still scope for curators to come up with new ways of examining his oeuvre. The Royal Academy’s brainwave is to examine both the conventional and highly unusual way in which Picasso used paper. Yes, he drew on it, endlessly, but he also studied and manipulated it, burning, folding and tearing, making prints and experimenting with materials, from newsprint and table napkins to rare sheets sourced from afar. Now you can discover over 300 works celebrating yet another dimension of this extraordinary artist.
