The exhibition features over 100 works from Picasso's extraordinary collection plus more than 80 important works by the artist himself. A range of documentary photographs also feature. Picasso & his collection' includes paintings, drawings and prints by artists such as Chardin, Matisse, Renoir, Cézanne, Rousseau, Miró, Modigliani and Braque, as well as an extraordinary selection of Oceanic and African works.

Patrick aged 5 visited the Picasso Exhibition at the Queensland Art Gallery on Thursday 12th June with his school. This will extend the work his class have been doing on the visual arts theme as well as understanding of what a gallery is.
Patrick attended a kids workshop on Picasso and viewed other displays as they relate to the curriculum.
