Named Picasso: Challenging the Past, the exhibition will continue until June 7th and it looks into the influence of other artists on the famous Spaniard.

Around 60 of the artist's work are to be found at the exhibition and it is organised thematically, including sections on self-portraits, the female nude and still life.
The exhibition has been organised by the National Gallery and the Reunion des Musees Nationaux in Paris.
