We will be exhibiting 19th and 20th Century works on paper and within that group a small, focussed presentation on the depiction of the human figure. We have an exceptional drawing made by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) in London in 1919 of Léonide Massine and Lydia Lopokova dancing the can-can with the Ballet Russes. In contrast, we have a beautiful watercolour by Stanley Cursiter (1887-1976), showing two female bathers on a jetty in Cassis in 1920, where the atmosphere is one of stillness and calm. This watercolour, together with a languorous nude powerfully rendered in ink by Eric Robertson, provides an interesting counterpoint to the vigorous vitality of Picasso’s dancers.
