The Boy who bit Picasso

28 Jun 2014 - 13 Sep 2014

Tony was a little boy with great friend - the world famous artist Pablo Picasso.

With his mum, photographer Lee Miller and dad, artist and writer Roland Penrose, the young Antony Penrose would often visit Picasso in the South of France, and Picasso spent time with the family at their home in Sussex.


Using photographs taken by Lee Miller and Roland Penrose, ceramics, drawings and graphic work by Pablo Picasso, sculpture by Antony Penrose, and a very special toy, this exhibition tells the story of their very unique and touching friendship.


A publication 'The Boy who bit Picasso' will be sold in the gallery shop for £8.95
