Pablo Picasso (1881 - 1973) Distinctly sharp features and an air of femininity add to this exquisite color linoleum cut by Pablo Picasso. Boldly composed with rich dark tones and opaque shapes, this piece evokes a sense of beauty and sensuality. The woman is defined by the paler brown as well as a lacy web of sweetly curving lines that accentuate her womanly form. The man is less detailed in comparison, composed more of block-like shapes than delicate lines. Utilizing simple shapes and lines to create complex imagery, Picasso's abstract technique takes on a multitude of layers in this work.

In addition to his etchings, Picasso's linocuts exemplify his immense innovation and talent as a printmaker. Picasso pioneered the linocut medium during his time spent living in Vallauris in the 1940s and 1950s, where he experimented with the material of linoleum to create linocut prints. Bold yet minimal coloration and sharp juxtapositions define his linocut imagery. Often composed of rich, dark tones and opaque shapes, Picasso's hand-signed linocuts display a rich sense of texture, contrast, precision, and animation. One such work, Buste de femme Cranach le Jeune, 1958 sold for over $550,000 in 2008.

As one of the most influential Modern artists of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso is renowned as a legendary artistic master to this day. Born on October 25, 1881 in Malaga, Spain, Pablo Picasso was a child prodigy who was recognized as such by his art-teacher father, who ably led him along. The small Museo de Picasso in Barcelona is devoted primarily to his early works, which include strikingly realistic renderings of casts of ancient sculpture.
