Including Works from the Personal Collection of the Artist’s Granddaughter, Marina
Pablo Picasso was an individual who shaped art history like no other. Turning his hand to virtually every medium, Picasso suffused every element of culture with his signature – instantly recognisable, yet constantly evolving – style. This online auction will celebrate the enduring legacy of the artist with works from across Picasso’s entire oeuvre in both date and scope, including paintings, drawings, unique ceramics, editions, photographs, and even paint palettes. Over sixty works in the sale come from the personal collection of the artist’s granddaughter, Marina Picasso, and with estimates starting from £400, going up to £400,000, this is the perfect opportunity to dive into the life and work of this exceptional artist. The works will be exhibited to the public, with appropriate safety restrictions in place, from 15 to 18 June, and viewing is available by appointment on request prior to those dates.
"Over the past few years we have seen an incredibly strong demand for Picasso as collectors across the world seek to acquire works of all media and periods by the most globally recognised artist of our time. This sale allows the viewer to explore the full gamut of his production, and invites them to pick their favourite from decades of experimentation – with subjects ranging from the swashbuckling matador and mythological minotaur to the myriad muses that made their mark."
