Gagosian London

28 Apr 201725 Aug 2017

Gagosian, in collaboration with Pablo Picasso’s grandson, Bernard Ruiz-Picasso, presents “Picasso: Minotaurs and Matadors”, an exhibition curated by Sir John Richardson examining the intersection of Picasso’s bullfighting imagery with his mythological and biographical compositions of the 1930s. Including works dating from 1889 to 1971, this career-long survey traces Picasso’s engagement with the ancient rituals and narratives of his native Mediterranean.
