Inside Art - London Picasso Show Is a Family Affair - NYTimes.com: "Since it opened on June 4, nearly 1,000 people a day — a giant number for a gallery show here — have been going to the Gagosian Gallery at Britannia Street to see “Picasso: The Mediterranean Years (1945-1962).”"
The exhibition was organized by John Richardson, the Picasso biographer, and Bernard Ruiz-Picasso, the artist’s grandson, the same people behind a hit Picasso gallery show in New York last year. The London exhibition charts a period of the artist’s life that has rarely been explored: the years when he spent most of his time in the south of France surrounded by bullfighters, poets, master craftsmen and fellow artists like Matisse. And his children.
