Pablo Picasso: Linocuts

In 1958, Pablo Picasso moved to the South of France with his lover Jacqueline Roque, and as a result, the artist’s long-distance relationship with his printmaking studio in Paris proved to be inconvenient. So the 77-year-old artist found a local printer and began experimenting with a new technique: linocuts, a relief printing method that involves carving directly into a sheet of linoleum. Drawn to the speed of the medium, Picasso created over 100 linocuts over the next five years. Portrait of a Woman after Cranach the Younger (1958), Portrait of a Woman in a Hat (1962), and Still Life with Glass Under the Lamp (1962) are some of the most popular linocuts from this period, regularly selling in the five and six figures at auction.
