Picasso and Paper: virtual exhibition tour

Available now

Experience our Picasso and Paper exhibition from your own home in this video tour of the galleries, created before the Royal Academy had to close its doors due to coronavirus. Picasso didn't just draw on paper — he tore it, burnt it, and made it three-dimensional. From studies for 'Guernica' to a 4.8-metre-wide collage, this exhibition brings together more than 300 works on paper spanning the artist's 80-year career.

Le Mystère Picasso is a remarkable documentary film made in 1956 by French director, Henri-Georges Clouzot, in which stop-action and time-lapse photography are used to capture Picasso at work. Not many of the works he created for the documentary survive – but three hang in our exhibition, Picasso and Paper; two especially restored for the show. Here’s the story of one of them, Visage: Head of a Faun.

Léon Spilliaert
Virtual Tour

Léon Spilliaert

Available now

Léon Spilliaert (1881–1946) was born in the coastal town of Ostend. He moved to Brussels at the age of 20, and would live and work between the two cities for the rest of his life. Self-taught, he forged his own artistic identity, which was shaped by the affinity he felt with writers and thinkers such as Edgar Allan Poe and Friedrich Nietzsche. This exhibition showcases some 80 works on paper – from images of Spilliaert’s home town and the coast, to later works capturing the tranquillity of the forest outside Brussels.
