Picasso Etchings

Thanks to a generous £1m donation by City fund manager Hamish Parker, the British Museum has acquired a complete set of Picasso's etchings in what is called the Vollard Suite (1930-1937) after the Paris art dealer and publisher who commissioned them. Not being a Picasso fan, I was surprised by the delicate quality of the example shown. The museum will put the etchings on display next year, from 3 May to 2 September.
