Pablo Picasso's Nude in a rocking chair (1956)

Discover more about one of the Gallery’s most loved modern paintings.

With its intense colours and rough-hewn shapes, Nude in a rocking chair is a perfect example of Pablo Picasso’s 1950s work, created at a time when he’d already become the most famous painter of the 20th century.

Find out from Josephine Touma what makes this artwork – and artist – so successful.

The talk will be Auslan-intepreted for deaf and hearing-impaired visitors and audio-described for blind and vision-impaired visitors.
