During Picasso’s prolific career, very few works have been able to attain the legendary status matching that of La Suite Vollard. From inception to completion, this particular project transpired over nine years, and stands as a defining achievement between Pablo Picasso and Ambroise Vollard. Much of Picasso’s life during the 1930’s was biographically etched into the suite. He transposed themes of mortality, his artistic legacy, and love, including his great love affair with Marie-Thérèse Walter. My expert advice is choose one or two of your favorite images and go after them, as these may be the best examples we will ever offer.
