A lovely collection of four of the renowned linocuts produced in 1962.

Picasso began making linoleum cuts during the late 1950's when the originals of these images were issued by Gallerie Louise Leiris in signed editions of 50.

In 1962 Picasso and the Louise Leiris Gallery cooperated again with the production of a facsimile edition of the linocuts, meticulously recreated in reduced size.

This impression from the sought-after 1962 edition was published on heavy wove paper with a richly textured printed surface. The sheet measures 318 x 365 mm and the image size is 270 x 325 mm.
Framed and glazed.

About Pablo Picasso

A prolific and tireless innovator of art forms, Pablo Picasso impacted the course of 20th-century art with unparalleled magnitude. Inspired by African and Iberian art and developments in the world around him, Picasso contributed significantly to a number of artistic movements, notably Cubism, Surrealism, Neoclassicism, and Expressionism. Along with Georges Braque, Picasso is best known for pioneering Cubism in an attempt to reconcile three-dimensional space with the two-dimensional picture plane, once asking, “Are we to paint what’s on the face, what’s inside the face, or what’s behind it?” Responding to the Spanish Civil War, he painted his most famous work, Guernica (1937), whose violent images of anguished figures rendered in grisaille made it a definitive work of anti-war art. “Painting is not made to decorate apartments,” he said. “It’s an offensive and defensive weapon against the enemy.” Picasso’s sizable oeuvre includes over 20,000 paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, theater sets, and costume designs.
