Who was Picasso in the eyes of his peers?

NGV’s winter blockbuster The Picasso Century offers more than a tale of the lone creative genius.

This might not be just another Picasso show. 

The Picasso Century spans both sides of the ground floor galleries at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) International in loose chronological order, beginning with Pablo Picasso’s move to Paris in 1900, to the final work Bust of a man wearing a hat (Buste d’homme au chapeau) (1969), only years before his passing in 1973, at the age of 91.
