By popular request OCA is extending an invitation to a study visit in Edinburgh. This is an invite to the same Picasso and Modern British Art exhibition that is on in London at the moment. The Edinburgh study visit will take place on Thursday 6 September meeting at the entrance at just before 11am. We have a guided tour with one of the gallery’s tour guides at 11 so its important to be on time. This major exhibition currently at Tate Britain, explores Picasso’s legacy and influence on British art. There will be over 150 artworks, with over 60 Picassos including paintings such as Weeping Woman 1937 and The Three Dancers 1925. The Picasso paintings will be on view alongside seven of Picasso’s most brilliant British admirers, exploring the impact he had on their art: Duncan Grant, Wyndham Lewis, Ben Nicholson, Henry Moore, Francis Bacon, Graham Sutherland and David Hockney. Picasso and Modern British Art is the first exhibition to trace Picasso’s rise in Britain.
If you plan to book train tickets calculate that the visit will end between 2.30 and 3pm. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your free place (though please note that students who haven’t been on study visits before will be given some priority, so book up now!) We plan to share email addresses between students who attend a study day. Please let us know if you are NOT happy to do this.
