Own a Picasso Work on Paper In Honor of His Birthday!

October 25, 2019

Pablo Picasso is probably one of the most important figures of the 20th century, in terms of art and art movements that occurred over this period. An innovative artist who continuously experimented during his 92-plus years on earth, he was not only a master painter but also a sculptor, printmaker, ceramics artist, etching artist and writer. He once said:

I look for inspiration in reality. Only reality powers my imagination and gives me new life.

Le peintre et son modèle

Picasso’s Le peintre et son modèle (The Painter and the Model) from 1964 is an exquisite lithograph dealing with the recurring theme of the artist and his muse. To the left of the image, a nude woman poses with her arms high above her head, while the artist stands behind the easel. This image is undoubtedly drawn from Picasso’s own life as an artist, who is known as a lover of feminine beauty and took on many muses himself.

Bottle of Vieux Marc, Glass and Newspaper

Bottle of Vieux Marc, Glass and Newspaper is the print of the 1913 small paper collage by the same title. It depicts a series of objects and paper fragments clustered on a table, signified by the loosely drawn oval edge in the lower right of the composition. The abstracted cutouts of objects, shown from several perspectives, are juxtapozed with drawn lines indicating other elements of each object’s shape. Introducing collage into his practice, Picasso sought to represent the realities of the modern city through a new medium.

Le Sculpteur

Throughout his career, Picasso produced a vast array of sculptures. In this work, the artist represents the sculptor, probably himself, in his studio, contemplating his own works. The composition includes two sculptures – a large bust of a woman staring down at the sculptor and a nude figure, seen in the background, constructed from sensual rounded forms. The sculptor’s sense of reverie seems to pervaded by sensuality and sexuality.

La Grande Maternite

A lithograph printed in 1963, La Grande Maternite depicts a mother gazing down lovingly at her young child cradled in her arms. Rendered in simple black lines, the soft body of the woman and child perfectly represent the sweet love that is directed between the two. The woman’s hair is adorned by delicate green frond with tiny pink and blue flowers. With relative simplicity, Picasso created a work imbued with an immense amount of emotion.

Exposition Vallauris

This poster was designed for the 1959 Vallauris Exhibition, the annual showcase of ceramics in the southern French town Vallauris, where the Catalan artist had settled in 1948. Picasso, who designed one poster each year from 1951 to 1964, made many of his ceramic artworks near Vallauris, in the local Madoura pottery. In this poster, Picasso expands upon his iconographic rhetoric used in his painting.

Les Danseurs au Hibou

In this 1959 linocut, dancers and musicians churn and twist to the inaudible music. Appearing out of the background of undulating hills, these figures throw their arms above their head and kick their legs up with joy. In this invigorating scene, Picasso, managed to capture fluid motion through the softness of his lines.
