Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)

Pablo Picasso is considered the most pivotal, innovative artist of the 20th century, displaying the evolutionary process of his creative genius both artistically and technically. He challenged all of his artistic mediums to attain the optimum results for his art.

Printmaking was a true passion for Picasso, and he was a major innovator 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 proofs illustrate the unique working relationship Picasso maintained with his printers. Their 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 linocuts, etching and lithography, and allow us to examine the working process behind it. His graphic oeuvre spans more than seven decades, and his published prints total approximately 2000 different images pulled from metal, stone, wood and linoleum. It is not only that Picasso mastered the difficulties of new techniques with playful ease; he soon went on to obtain results that had before been deemed impossible.

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.
