In January 2020, the Royal Academy of Arts will present Picasso and Paper, the most comprehensive exhibition devoted to Picasso’s imaginative and original uses of paper ever to be held. Bringing together over 300 works and encompassing Picasso’s entire prolific 80-year career, this ground-breaking exhibition will focus on the myriad ways in which the artist worked both on and with paper, and will offer new insights into his creative spirit and working methods.
Exhibition organised by the Royal Academy of Arts, London and the Cleveland Museum of Art in partnership with the Musée national Picasso-Paris.

Feb 23 - May 25, 2020
The Royal Academy of Arts will present the first monographic exhibition in the UK of Léon Spilliaert, a Flemish artist who remains surprisingly unknown outside of his native Belgium, where his work is widely admired and collected. Featuring some 90 works, the exhibition will provide a rare opportunity to view his intriguing and often mysterious work. As a young man Spilliaert was fuelled by existential angst, captured in a sequence of visionary self-portraits and atmospheric night-time scenes of his hometown, the North Sea resort Ostend. He moved to Brussels in 1920 and lived between the two cities for the rest of his life.
