22 Sept 2006-7 Jan 2007. Viennas Albertina Museum presents an exhibition of around 200 artworks from the last 12 years of Pablo Picassos life. In terms of output, these were the most productive of the Spanish artists long life (1881-1973). In 1961, at the age of 80, Picasso acquired a country house on the French Riviera where he worked against time, following a rigid daily schedule. This exhibition focuses on the contrast between the meticulous, detailed drawings and the masterful speedy, wild and sensual paintings produced in the years before his death. Featuring Picassos favourite themes including nudes, disparate couples, self-portraits and love-scenes, the exhibition draws on loans of paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures from over 60 different institutions and collectors. Admission 10, students, over-65s 7.50, under-6s free. Daily 10.00-18.00, Weds 10.00-21.00.
