British Museum acquires Picasso etchings with £1m donation

The most important series of etchings done by Picasso during his long career has been acquired by the British Museum thanks to a £1m donation from a city fund manager.

Almost half of the 100 etchings in the Vollard Suite - which date from the 1930s - show Picasso's studio and his growing interest in sculpture.

Arts Correspondent, Rebecca Jones, has been to the museum to take a look.
