Picasso in Color exhibition catalog cover


Opening February 16, 2019

Pablo Picasso is the most celebrated, recognized and sought after of all artists in the 20th century. Always innovative and ground-breaking, he consistently challenged all of his artistic mediums to obtain the optimum results for his art. Throughout his long and illustrious career, Picasso demonstrated an extraordinary proclivity toward experimentation. The result was a bounty of artistic riches that have forever changed the art world.

Printmaking was a true passion for Picasso, and he was a major pioneer
in this medium. He altered his methods to achieve singular, expressive qualities in his multiples. He worked with numerous ateliers over the decades, and his rare proof impressions illustrate the working relationship Picasso maintained with his printers. Their skilled craftsmanship made Picasso’s extensive and revolutionary experimentation with the media possible. Works created in collaboration with the great printers represent the breadth of Picasso’s considerable oeuvre in linoleum cuts, etchings, and lithographs, and allow us to examine the working
process behind it.

Galerie Michael is privileged to present this special selection of works
by Pablo Picasso. Full of color, this rare collection of unique proofs and works on paper represent a landmark exhibition, years in the making. This is an extraordinary opportunity for one to acquire unique works that still hold the creative magic and originality of Picasso’s own hand. We invite you to the gallery to explore the full exhibition.
