This exhibition brings fresh attention to Pablo Picasso’s brilliantly inventive career as a printmaker. More than 70 works from Dusseldorf’s Museum Kunstpalast reveal Picasso’s remarkable ability to explore different media and creative techniques, offering a glimpse into the artist’s intimate and passionate domestic relationships. Picasso regarded printmaking as every inch an important art form as painting. So much so that he created over 2000 prints during his lifetime. He received no formal training in the craft, but acquired great skill on his own volition and under the tutelage of others.

This show – with works dating from the 1920s to the 1960s – traces Picasso experiments with technique and subject matter in various media, including etching, lithography, aquatint and linocut. Taking the visitor on a journey through four decades of his work, thematically grouped to give a greater understanding of his relationships with several subjects – including family, bullfighting and mythology.  Picasso on Paper is complemented by eight ceramics that he created in association with the Madoura pottery near Antibes in Provence.
