The Picasso exhibition in Istanbul is the first solo show for any major Western artist in Turkey.
The show at the Sakip Sabanci Museum was the dream of the gallery's millionaire namesake.
Classic pieces such as Les Demoiselles D'Avignon are on display among earlier works.
The tapestry of Femmes a leur Toilette adds a Turkish flavour to the exhibition.
It also included ceramics and sculptures, such as Head of a Warrior (pic: Images Modernes. Photo: Eric Baudouin)
Compulsory audio guides are provided to help Turkish visitors fully appreciate the works of the Spanish artist.

Organisers hope the exhibition will further enhance Western ties with modern Turkey.
