at The Courtauld Gallery situated at Somerset House.

London is full of surprises and wants to bring the Paris atmosphere to life! Love it!

His early paintings are very different to his later work. In this year Picasso was already in a position to create something new of his own – the long series of works known as his Blue Period. He was inspired by Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec and Degas and he was transforming their styles in his own ways.
