Picasso Suite Vollard

Myth, Art, and Life: Picasso's Suite Vollard

In 1933, Pablo Picasso embarked on a monumental project: the creation of a series of 100 etching for his dealer, Ambrose Vollard. When completed four years later, the Suite Vollard would stand as one of his greatest achievements. Not only are the etchings a remarkable display of Picasso's use of line, but they also reveal the depth of his creative imagination. Blending Classical myth and autobiography, the artist used the reoccurring figures of a sculptor, his model, and the Minotaur to create his uniquely personal narratives.

In addition to viewing the prints from the Suite Vollard in the KIA collection, this three-part program will also include a background presentation about Picasso's life and work in the 1930s as well as a demonstration of the etching process.

Up Close: Exploring the Collection programs offer a chance to learn about the KIA's outstanding collection wit Associate Curator of Collections Greg Waskowsky.
