Picasso & the Masters of Print offers a unique opportunity to view together some of the most important prints by one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. The seven prints by Picasso held at The Higgins Bedford span seven decades of his career and spectacularly showcase the varied printmaking techniques that he mastered.
These stunning works will be accompanied by a wider exhibition of major artists’ original prints drawn from the Cecil Higgins Collection. Five centuries of printmaking will be on show, ranging from masterpieces by key figures in the history of European printmaking, such as Dürer and Rembrandt, through to 20thcentury icons such as Matisse and Warhol, and including contemporary artists such as Paula Rego and Mark Hearld.
