In pictures: Picasso and Africa

The last Picasso exhibition in Africa was in Senegal in 1972. President Leopold Senghor, a friend of Picasso, paid tribute to an artist "who, like the ancient Mediterraneans and black Africans, used analogical images, form-symbols, both to express his inner vision and make it known."

The current exhibition is at Johannesburg's Standard Bank Gallery from 10 February to 19 March, and at Cape Town's National Gallery from 13 April to 21 May.
