Picasso and the Bloomsbury Set


It's just over a hundred years since Picasso was first exhibited in Britain.

His reception was frosty but there were artists and critics in the Bloomsbury Group who championed the great Spaniard and were the first to put his work in front of the British public.

The Today programme's Nicola Stanbridge took a tour of a news exhibition at Tate Britain with one of the Bloomsbury set's descendants.
