Pablo Picasso

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.

Picasso’s fame as a painter perhaps overshadowed his work as a sculptor, but in this field too he must rank among the most outstanding figures of the 20th Century, being one of the first artists to make brilliant and witty sculpture out of assembled objects.

It is our good fortune that Picasso had such a great love of printmaking.  By the time he died in 1973 he had produced a substantial body of original etchings, lithographs and linocuts, which rank with the greatest prints of the 20th Century.  While the ownership of an original painting by the master is, for the majority of us, out of the question, his original prints made in comparatively small editions are still relatively accessible.
