Picasso 1932- Love, Fame, Tragedy

 

Picasso 1932- Love, Fame, Tragedy

The Tate Modern’s exhibition on Picasso is a display of his many works created during the year 1932.

Picasso’s welded sculpture has influenced many of my figurative pieces. Woman in the Garden, 1929–30, (pictured above) is a white, painted iron piece welded into the form of a female figure.

This exhibition was a rare opportunity to see several of Picasso’s sculptural works in person, often they are ignored in favour of his paintings and drawings so the visit was an unusual event. The welded works Picasso created were experimental and sporadic but have become influential for their use of scrap material and animated appearance.
