Picasso: Peace and Freedom

Picasso: Peace and Freedom reveals Picasso as a politically and socially engaged artist, actively involved in politics and the Peace Movement during the Cold War. In October 1944 Picasso joined the French Communist Party and remained a member until his death in 1973. His work during this period chronicled human conflict and war but also expressed a deep desire for peace, international understanding and equality.

The exhibition looks at Picasso as a 'History Painter', injecting this traditional form of narrative painting with new significance and meaning. It tracks how he followed the success of Guernica 1937 as a political protest painting with a series of ambitious works reflecting events during the Cold War: The Charnel House 1944-45; the War and Peace murals; The Women of Algiers 1954-55; Las Meninas 1957; and The Rape of the Sabines series, painted at the height of Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962.
