Picasso on Britannia Street

The current exhibition at Gagosian gallery, near Kings Cross, is "Picasso - the Mediterranean Years" - on till 28 August and very worth a visit.The gallery is in a yet-to-be-developed part of town - it's in an old warehouse and this dilapidated parking lot is across the street -
But there's lots of room inside and the low-lit rooms are invigilated by tall young men in suits with earpieces.

I was intrigued by the 2D (just about) works that weren't paintings - an almost-flat sculpture made of two sheets of metal, and the paper cut-outs, slightly folded, of birds, bull and toreador, faces -
You can just about see these in the display on the left (photo is from gallery's website) -
I might have to go back, not just to see the exhibition again, but to buy this poster -
