PICASSO THE PRINTMAKER Pablo Picasso was born in Spain in 1881 and was to become the most famous, versatile, prolific and influential artist of the 20th century. The son of a painting and drawing master, he was remarkably precocious, mastering academic draughtsmanship when still a child. By the 1920s Picasso had established himself as a world famous painter and from that time on his reputation and status continued to grow. It is our good fortune that Picasso had such a great love of print-

making. By the time he died in 1973 he had produced a substantial body of original etchings, lithographs and linocuts, which rank alongside the greatest prints of the century. While the ownership of an original painting is, for the majority of us, out of the question, Picasso’s prints are still relatively accessible. Between 1958 and 1961 Picasso made many linocuts, a process that he found hugely stimulating. These linocuts were first issued in signed editions of 50 by Galerie

Louise Leiris, many of which now sell at between £8,000 and £80,000 each. Picasso invented the ‘reduction’ method, progressively cutting the same linoblock for each new colour, making it impossible to take any further prints from the original plates. In 1962, in collaboration with Picasso and Galerie Louise Leiris, new linoleum plates were made at 42% of the original size, and it was from these that the prints on offer here were made.
