About Artist:

Picasso’s prints demonstrate his intuitive and characteristic ability to recognize and exploit the possibilities inherent in any medium in which he chose to work. Between 1919 and 1930 he occasionally turned his hand to lithography.  Then, in the etchings of the Vollard series, his creative powers reached a first culminating point.  Most of the compositions that followed during the war years were intended for book illustrations. In 1939, on the eve of the Second World War, Picasso carved his first linoleum cut

After World War II, Picasso’s production as a printmaker substantially increased and the etching and engraving continued to be his favorite medium for graphic expression.  During several concentrated spans of time, however, he was profoundly involved with two other techniques: first lithography on stone, (and its surrogate, zinc) and subsequently, linocut, a relief method of carving and printing similar to woodcut but utilizing a linoleum instead of a wood surface.  Picasso adapted the processes of both lithography and linocut to his own language and to his individual methods as a peintre-graveur.  His continual inventiveness sometimes challenged his collaborators, the printers, to the limits of their own skills as craftsmen.
