Walking around the streets in the immediate vicinity of Gagosian one might be forgiven in thinking that the centre of the commercial London art scene has definitely shifted from Cork Street to North Mayfair. Gagosian has galleries either side of Grosvenor Hill, the one in the north side with access down a side street, is the larger of the two currently housing an exhibition called Picasso's Minotaurs and Matadors. The large glass doors opened by a flunky access a reception area with a few catalogued on display. Beyond a series of rooms displaying works influenced by the bullfight or Greek myth from many diffferent periods of Picasso's long career and in many different media ranging from oil paintings, prints and sculptures. Between galleries in a corridor space a montage of documentary films about Picasso can be seen whilst reclining upon a long sofa. Such a comprehensive display matches a major exhibition in a national gallery.
