Walker Art Gallery: Picasso On Paper

14 July 2015 – Saturday 31 October 2015

‘Picasso on paper’ is a small display featuring a recently acquired drawing, ‘Study for Temptation of St Anthony’ by Pablo Picasso, one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.

Formerly owned by the great British painter and collector Lucian Freud, the drawing was gifted to National Museums Liverpool by Arts Council England as part of the Acceptance in Lieu scheme.

The display includes another drawing by the artist, ‘Pau Cucurny with a dog’, acquired by National Museums Liverpool in 2000, along with a gouache watercolour by Spanish artist Enrique Garrán, who was greatly influenced by Picasso’s cubist style.
