Catalogue Note

This unique work provides incredible insight into the artist’s creative and technical processes. Picasso, working with his master printer, Arnéra, was constantly experimenting with superimposing different blocks/images as well as trying out different ways of inking the blocks.  This example, which presents the viewer with the immediacy of a work of art emerging from the creative process, also exhibits the raw experimentation with which Picasso was continually investigating, particularly in his graphic art.
