The exhibition will bring together more than a hundred paintings, sculptures, and drawings.

London-bound travelers in the coming months should make a beeline for the Tate Modern, which is mounting its first-ever solo Pablo Picasso exhibition from March 8 to September 9.

Touted as one of the most significant shows staged at the gallery so far, “The EY Exhibition: Picasso 1932 – Love, Fame, Tragedy” brings together more than a hundred paintings, sculptures, and drawings created in 1932—along with a trove of family photographs—to chronicle the master’s pivotal “year of wonders.”

Notably, three 
of his most celebrated paintings that feature his young lover Marie-Thérèse Walter will be shown together for the first time: 
The Dream, the Tate’s own Nude Woman in a Red Armchair, and Girl Before a Mirror, which rarely leaves the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
