Highlights of the exhibition include a four-and-a-half metre collage entitled Women at Their Toilette, which will be exhibited in the UK for the first time in 50 years, a collection of Cubist collages such as Violin and documentary film Documentary film Le Mystère Picasso of 1955, showing the artist at work.

The exhibition will take viewers on a chronological journey through the different stages of Picasso’s career, with notable pieces exhibited alongside preparatory drawings and other paper works that correspond to the same theme.
