Group travel organisers can take parties to see some of Picasso’s first paintings at The Courtauld Gallery next spring.

Running from 14th February until 26th May, Becoming Picasso: Paris 1901 tells the story of Pablo Picasso’s breakthrough year as an artist – 1901.

The exhibition focuses on his figure paintings, and explores his development during this seminal year when he found his own artistic voice.

Becoming Picasso: Paris 1901 gives groups the opportunity to experience works - now considered to be Picasso’s first masterpieces - which established his early reputation. They are also among the earliest paintings to bear the famously assertive and singular Picasso signature, which he adopted in 1901.

Tickets are on sale online from 1st January. A special event series accompanies this exhibition.
