Picasso 1932: Love, Fame, Tragedy1932, Picasso's 'year of wonder', proves to be a great hook on which to hang Picasso 1932 - Love, Fame, Tragedy, a brilliant blockbuster of an exhibition at Tate Modern, the first the gallery has ever staged on the Spanish artist. Three years in the making, the exemplary exhibition brings together more than 100 paintings, many of which have not been reunited since they were created. It begins with two paintings completed on Christmas Day 1931, one symbolising his love affair with Marie-Therese Walter, the subject of so many of these curvaceous, beguiling paintings. Though hung chronologically, taking us on a month-by-month journey, themes of 'love', 'fame' and 'tragedy' are fleshed out. In a room painted deep burgundy red, family portraits at the heart of Picasso's Paris retrospective are reunited for the first time in 86 years. As the year draws to a close, and the threat of another world war looms, themes of drowning and sexual violence appear and the darker subject matter hints that tragedy is not far away.
