Tate Britain has a massively exciting exhibition coming up from February 15th to July 15th. The show will focus largely on Pablo Picasso, and I know what you’re saying: “Picasso isn’t British!” You’re right – but the exhibition will feature British artists that we all know and love and is meant to explore Picasso’s influence on these artists.

After searching through the Easyart collection for some of the artists to be featured in the exhibition (Henry Moore, Francis Bacon, David Hockney, and more), I found some very interesting pieces (pictured above) that could illustrate Picasso’s influence.

“The Dance,” Pablo Picasso

There will be over 150 works at the exhibition, 60+ of which are by Picasso. Amongst the works on display, you can behold the above image , “The Dance” (or “The Three Dancers”) with your very own eyes.
