The Vollard Suite

August 17 through December 22, 2013

Pablo Picasso created the one hundred etchings in his ferociously inventive Vollard Suite between 1930 and 1937. This suite—on view at the museum in its entirety—reveals his mastery of the printmaking process as well as his dialogue with surrealism and the art of the past.

This exhibition was organized by the Hood Museum of Art and made possible by Claire Foerster and Daniel Bernstein, Dartmouth College Class of 1987, the Marie-Louise and Samuel R. Rosenthal Fund, the Ray Winfield Smith 1918 Fund, and the Bernard R. Siskind 1955 Fund.
