Picasso to Julie Mehretu: modern drawings from the British Museum collection

7 October 2010 – 25 April 2011  /  Room 90  /  Free

The British Museum has an unparalleled collection of graphic art from across the world, and actively collects modern and contemporary works today.

Collected over the past 35 years, this exhibition showcases many of the great artists of the 20th century, starting with Picasso’s study for his masterpiece Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, the painting that shook the art world in 1907.

It also features works by E L Kirchner, Otto Dix, Matisse, Magritte, David Smith and Louise Bourgeois and major contemporary artists, including Anselm Kiefer, Gerhard Richter and William Kentridge.

The exhibition concludes with Julie Mehretu, the Ethiopian-born artist who is one of the stars of the international contemporary art scene with acclaimed solo exhibitions at the Guggenheim in New York and across the world.
