See the new Picasso linocuts at the British Museum
Date Posted: 01/04/14
If you’re a fan of Picasso, then get yourself to the British Museum before May 6th, to see two new linocut prints, created by one of the world’s most influential artists.
The prints which were produced when Picasso when he was 80 years old, are deemed to be of the highest importance because they provide evidence of the steps he took to create the works.
The two pieces ‘Still Life Under the Lamp’ and ‘Jacqueline Reading’ were both produced in 1962 when Picasso was living in the South of France and experimenting with the linocut technique.
‘Still Life Under the Lamp’ depicts apples next to a glass goblet, lit by a lampshade and ‘Jacqueline Reading’ features the second wife of Picasso, engrossed in reading.
See Picasso’s linocut prints and other historical marvels at the British Museum on a short break to the capital.
