Genius, lover, icon, artist. Pablo Picasso remains one of the most celebrated artists of all time. This weekend the Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG) unveils two exhibitions showcasing the art of Picasso. His best work from collections across the country is gathered for Picasso in Canada, along with Picasso: Man & Beast. The Vollard Suite of Prints, organized by the National Gallery of Canada, featuring the artist’s rarely displayed, masterpiece etchings and drypoints on loan from the national collection. With only a handful of the complete sets in existence today, The Vollard Suite is a national treasure and rarely exhibited due to its fragility and scale. Both shows open to the public tomorrow and run until August 13.
