Iconic Modern artist Pablo Picasso ( 1881-1973) produced a diverse range of work throughout the 20th century. King & McGaw's Picasso collection includes Cubist paintings, line drawings, portraits and a selection of rare posters from Galerie Mourlot and Gagosian.
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) is undeniably the most prolific artist of the 20th century. From child prodigy to creative revolutionary, in his lifetime Picasso produced countless masterpieces. His work has had a profound influence on modern art that can still be felt today.
Together with Georges Braque, Picasso founded the Cubism movement which deconstructed the tradition of perspective in painting. His seminal work, ‘Les Desmoiselles d’Avignon (1907)’ was ground-breaking in its abstraction, with flattened geometric planes and reference to African Art.
During his career he worked through an impressive array of styles, from the melancholic Blue period to his restless furtherance of Surrealism, but every work is a testament to his ingenious mastery over colour and form. Picasso also enjoyed working in many mediums, from painting to lithography and ceramics. Discover our diverse collection of prints by this truly iconic artist.
