Pablo Picasso combined his talent as a draftsman with the use of abundant colors in his linocuts. This printing technique was very appealing to the Spanish artist because it enabled him to create graphics which were on a par with paintings as far as their coloristic effects were concerned.
In the 50s Picasso concerned himself intensely with linocut. This artistic technique had been neglected for years and was consequently to experience a renaissance. The catalog at hand came about in connection with an exhibition which was conceived by the Kunstmuseum Pablo Picasso in Münster. Apart from describing Picasso’s unconventional handling of this printing technique, it also recounts the history of the linocut and the biographical circumstances under which the artist created his works.
This volume contains roughly 100 illustrations and represents a cosmos of bull fighting scenes, mythological depictions and portraits. Countless artist’s proofs and trial proofs attest to Picasso’s experimental approach to the medium linocut. Above all, these works, which came about between 1954 and 1968, document the mature work of this Spanish artist. At the same time, these pictures convey the almost youthful buoyancy of an artist of over 70 who once more became an “apprentice” of a so far untried technique.
