Picasso & Sylvette
1 - 29 May
Please Note - The first week of this exhibition is by appointment only and the exhibition opens to the general public Saturday 8th May at our gallery in Castle Cary.
The full exhibition goes live here online Saturday 1st May.
An exhibition of twenty-five original works on paper by Pablo Picasso curated for the first time with twenty-five contemporary paintings by his former model, Lydia Corbett née Sylvette David.
The Picasso collection includes a series of signed works through different forms of print-making. A diverse range of etchings, linocuts, lithographs and aquatints from the 1920s - 1960s are available, as well as linocut prints and ceramics created by Picasso in Vallauris, where he first met Lydia Corbett in 1954. The impact of the painter / muse aspect of this relationship has helped form the voice of Lydia Corbett’s own painting practice and this exhibition is a rare and exclusive opportunity to see the works of both Picasso and his muse in one place, creating a unique and beautiful conversation between these artists’ works.
