Recognized as one of the most innovative and influential artists of the twentieth century, Pablo Picasso (1881–1973) was at his most ferociously inventive between 1930 and 1937, when he created a series of etchings that are collectively known today as the Vollard Suite. Named after Ambroise Vollard, the famed art dealer who gave Picasso his first exhibition in Paris in 1901, these etchings reveal the Spanish artist's mastery of the printmaking process, as well as his dialogue with surrealism and the art of the past. This exhibition will showcase the one hundred prints that make up the Vollard Suite alongside works by Rembrandt and Goya that inspired Picasso during the making of these celebrated etchings.

Organized by the Hood Museum of Art and made possible by Claire Foerster and Daniel Bernstein, Dartmouth College Class of 1987, the Marie-Louise and Samuel R. Rosenthal Fund, the Ray Winfield Smith 1918 Fund, and the Bernard R. Siskind 1955 Fund.
