The linoleum cuts of Pablo Picasso reveal the graphic genius of this undisputed giant among 20th-century Artists. Between 1939 and 1968, Picasso explored such themes as bullfights, bacchanalia, still lifes, female heads and figure studies in a medium that he helped to revolutionalize.
His invention of the one-block technique of linocut printing enabled him to achieve brilliantly coloured and richly textured works on paper.
This splendid book reproduces in six colours 147 of Picasso’s linoleum cuts as well as 10 of his ceramic plaques.
24.0 x 30.0cms (landscape), 166pp, 157 colour illusts, very good hardcover & dustwrapper This book identifies the linocuts in 3 periods: 1954-60; 1961-62 & 1963-68 and posters 1951-64.
Hardcover with dust jacket. White cover boards are soiled towards edges on front and back cover. Internally clean with no previous owner’s marks or signatures. The binding is tight and the hinges are intact. The dust jacket is also in good condition; slightly marked on the back cover with light wear, as well as some very slight sun fading to the rear panel, along the spine edge. Foxing to front and end pages but the colour interior pages are without foxing.
