Pablo Picasso is acknowledged to be one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, but how much do we really know about him? An icon in his own lifetime, by 1947 he was renowned for his painting and had moved through many artistic styles. Picasso: Fired with Passion explores the ways he pushed back the boundaries of convention and tradition to create his unique works of art. Photographs and works of art also provide a fascinating insight into the world of Picasso the man, illustating the busy, crowded life-style of family, friends and artistic contemporaries who inspired and influenced his work. Picasso: Fired with Passion focuses on Picasso's intense artistic productivity between 1947 and 1961, when he explored and experimented with different media, from ceramics and printmaking to jewellery and metalwork.
