Pablo Picasso created 100 copper etchings between September 1930 and March 1937. These pieces commissioned by the art dealer and editor Ambroise Vollard have come to be known as the Suite Vollard.
In 1938, the set of 100 prints appeared in two different formats, one large and one small. Today the small-format prints are scattered among different private and public collections, and only some of these sets, such as the Fundacion Mapfre’s, are preserved in their entirety.
The Suite Vollard is coming to Manila.
The Metropolitan Museum of Manila will host Pablo Picasso’s famous etchings from 10 November 2011 to 8 January 2012.
The Met is located at the Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas Complex, Roxas Boulevard, Manila. For more details please call 5211517 or visit their website at www.metmuseum.ph.
