1967

Price Upon Request

About

Full of dynamic positioning, creative imagery and vivid color, the figures in Pablo Picasso Bacchanale were created with a high degree of volumetric tonality and life-like energy. Drawing our attention to the ambiguous nude in the right center, Picasso highlights the form with detailed and layered coloring that causes the figure to stand out and capture our attention. Utilizing a variety of deep grey tones and whites in the shading, the depth of this work is amplified with the use of overlapping details, as seen with the surrounding figures. There is a wealth of detail and imagery that captivates our senses in this magnificent and rare work. Combing his color palatte from the very early Blue Period with his complex cubist sensibilities of the forties and fifties, this is a well rounded work that will provide an ideal contribution to any serious Picasso collection. Created after an original painting of the same title, this color lithograph and pochoir, is printed on BFK Reves paper. Signed 'Picasso' in the plate in green ink lower right. Bacchanale is framed to museum-grade, conservation standards, presented in a complimentary moulding and finished with silk-wrapped mats and optical grade Plexiglass. Signed Picasso in the plate in green, lower right

About Pablo Picasso (Artist)

One of the most prolific and revolutionary artists the world has ever seen, Pablo Picasso (1881–1973) had a tremendous impact on the development of 20th-century modern art.


Although he is best known for his association with the Cubist movement, which he founded with Georges Braque, Picasso’s influence extends to Surrealism, neoclassicism and expressionism.


“Every act of creation is, first of all, an act of destruction,” the Spanish artist proclaimed. In his Cubist paintings, he emphasizes the two-dimensionality of the canvas, breaking with conventions regarding perspective, foreshortening and proportion. Picasso was inspired by Iberian and African tribal art. One of his most famous pre-Cubist works is Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907), a painting considered immoral and shocking at the time for its depiction of nude women whose faces resemble Iberian tribal masks.


He made many portraits in this style, most often of the women in his life, their expressively colored faces composed of geometric shards of surface planes. In Woman in a Hat (Olga), 1935, he painted his first wife as an assemblage of abstract forms, leaving the viewer to decipher the subject through the contrasting colors and shapes. Picasso was a tireless artist, creating more than 20,000 paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics and sculptures. Tracing his life’s work reveals the progression of modern art, on which he had an unparalleled influence.
