About

PABLO PICASSO 1881-1973 Málaga 1881- 1973 Mougins (Spanish) Title: Caricature of General de Gaulle and Two Women, from: Series 347 Caricature du général de Gaulle et deux femmes, 1968 Technique: Original Hand Signed and Numbered Drypoint, Aquatint with Scraper on Wove Paper Paper size: 47.4 x 56.5 cm. / 18.6 x 22.2 x in. Image size: 31.5 x 39.5 cm. / 12.4 x 15.5 in. Additional Information: This drypoint, aquatint with scraper is hand signed in pencil by the artist “Picasso” at the lower right margin. It is dated in the plate “21.4.68.I.” It is also hand numbered in pencil from the edition of 50, at the lower left margin. There were also 17 artist’s proofs aside from the standard edition. This etching was printed in 1968 by the Crommelynck Brothers in France and published by Galerie Louise Leiris, Paris the following year. This work is the 45th composition in the 347 series. Note: The “347 Series” was, in printmaking, the undertaking which defined late Picasso. This prodigious outpouring of work, dating from March 16th–October 5th, 1968, deals with all his old themes and fantasies, adding an obsession newly central in the late 60s, the artist as voyeur. It is in this role, rather than that of a protagonist, that the artist figures in these fantastic narrations. In order to be able to work with full freedom and concentration, Picasso had his printers, the brothers Crommelynck, bring the etching plates and hand press to his farmhouse near Cannes. Provenance: Estate of Henri Marie Petiet (1894-1980) Literature: Bloch, G. (1968). Pablo Picasso: Tome II, Catalogue of the printed graphic work 1966-69. Berne: Editions Kornfeld et Klipstein. Reference: Bloch 1525 Condition: Excellent condition.

About the Artist

Pablo Picasso

One of the most prolific and revolutionary artists the world has ever seen, Pablo Picasso 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 Picasso's 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.

Picasso 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.
