In 1930 Pablo Picasso began his most celebrated series of etchings, which he exchanged seven years later with modern art dealer and print publisher Ambroise Vollard for a selection of French Impressionist paintings. The complete suite of 100 works, on loan from the National Gallery of Australia, is on view now at the Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA) until 3 February 2019. The works are indicative of the key themes in his practice; male sexuality, fear, obsession and history and contain core symbols from the artist as minotaur and Pygmalion. AGSA’s display is paired with screenings of Jean Cocteau’s Blood of a Poet (1930), Picasso’s friend and collaborator.
