Art Matters-Pablo Picasso

Whether you swear by him or at him, Picasso was undeniably the most successful and influential artist of the 20th Century. He was able to change his style, so quickly, so completely, that he seemed like many different artists. You can’t like it all, he made over 50,000 works of art. But there will be one era, one style, even a single painting, that will make you say; “I didn’t know Picasso did that, I love that.”

Join us for a look at, and a discussion of, the many, many styles, expressions, loves and lives of the man at the heart of modern art.  Free and open to the public
