For the duration of the exhibition, A New Zealand Story, the compositions on display will have a guest alongside them. Although Picasso is primarily associated with the cubist genre, he retained a significant interest in many forms of artistic expression. He frequently applied his skills as a draughtsman to one of his great passions in life, bullfighting. Below is just such a rendition, now in the Welcome Swallow Gallery. If you are on lunch break or find yourself strolling the pavements in Hamilton East, drop into the gallery. There's a Picasso in town. You should see it.
