The Collection in Context, the MPM prepared a parallel series of lectures by leading art historians and experts on the work of Pablo Picasso. The exhibition’s curator, Elizabeth Cowling, launched the cycle on Thursday 14 May 2009 with her lecture Paper, cardboard and scissors: Picasso and the craft of sculpture.

The cycle also featured Posing for Picasso, on 11 June, a talk between Elizabeth Cowling and Lydia Corbett (aka Sylvette), who posed as a model for a number of Pablo Picasso’s works.
