About

A set of three states (I, II, and IV) by Pablo Picasso. "Deux Femmes avec un Vase a Fleurs" is a set of three prints, linocuts in a palette of blacks, whites, and beiges by Spanish artist Pablo Picasso. State I and IV are linocut printed in color on Arches vellum paper with Arches watermark; and, slate II is a linocut printed cream over a brown-orangy background on strong 'offset' paper. State I is inscribed in the lower middle, by the printer, in pencil, "1959 1 er Etat Deux Femmes" and stamped verso, "Imprimerie Arnera Archives / Non Signe"; state II is stamped on the verso, "Imprimerie Arnera Archives / Non Signe"; and state IV is signed in the lower right, in pencil, and dedicated lower middle, in pencil, "Pour B. Geiser". States I and II measure 24 3/4 x 29 1/2 in. and the frame measurements are 32 1/4x 38 1/2 x 3/4 in.; and state IV measures 24 1/2 x 29 1/2 in. and the frame measurements are 35 1/4 x 40 1/4 x 1 1/4 in. Arguably one of the greatest, most radical and most influential artists of the 20th century, Picasso’s legacy is far-reaching and enduring. More than any other artist, Picasso defined Modern Art of the twentieth century by his establishment and development of one of its major movements, Cubism.

About the Artist

Pablo Picasso

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. Browse an expansive collection of Pablo Picasso's art on 1stDibs.
