There have been lots of very favourable reviews about this exhibition but I wasn't prepared for how moving it was. Showing artwork from a very early age, drawing his close family over decades again and again, you could feel how he used drawing not only to look intently but to try and capture life. It was intensely personal yet universal.
Among my favourites were the drawings of his mother, particularly the one above , on loan from MOMA. The connection of lines to from the body to the room draw you in, linking the subject to their surroundings ( as well as being an excellent lesson in perspective!) . There was also a lovely , loving painting of her knitting.
It was touching to see the work recording his brother Diego from childhood onwards, again I like the ones that set the subject in their surroundings, in this painting a bed in the studio. Of the sculptures, the one above, in 2 flattened planes, was the one I returned to several times.
