Picasso the Collector

For the first time outside Europe, Picasso comes to Queensland’s Gallery of Modern Art this June.

We do not often think of famous artists as collectors, but quite often they have spent years acquiring, and being inspired by, the work of other artists.

The Gallery of Modern Art is soon to present ‘Picasso and his Collection’ – an exhibition that shows works from Picasso’s 150-strong collection of art by names such as Chardin, Le Nain, Matisse, Renoir, Cézanne, Rousseau, Miro, Modigliani and Braque, as well as a selection of Oceanic and African works.

These will be shown alongside around thirty of Picasso’s own works, providing clues as to Picasso’s inspiration through his career. ‘Picasso and his Collection’ at GoMA is the first time that this collection has been shown outside Europe.

The exhibition ’Picasso & his Collection’ will be  shown exclusively in Brisbane from June 9 to September 14. Gallery of Modern Art, Stanley Place, South Bank, Brisbane. Monday to Friday 10.00am – 5.00pm, Saturday and Sunday 9.00am – 5.00pm.
