“Without great solitude, no serious work is possible,” said Picasso. The studio was his sanctuary, particularly as his fame grew. The photographs we have of Picasso at work bring us into this creative space, where, surrounded by his own work, he continually reinvented himself. Those moments of innovation are particularly palpable in his drawings – perhaps the most intimate of mediums. More than 100 such works on paper will be joined by 70 ceramics and terracotta sculptures, all from the personal collection of the artist’s granddaughter, Marina Picasso. —Meghan Dailey
