This volume presents Picasso's entire lithographic oeuvre, consisting of 855 pieces - for the first time in full color throughout the book.
In the technique of lithography, like in no other medium, Picasso´s creative genius reveals itself after 1945 through its unfailing power of transformation concerning theme, contents and form. This book presents Picasso´s complete lithographic oeuvre consisting of 860 items. The works are mostly taken from the Huizinga collection, the central holdings of the first Picasso museum in Germany, the Graphikmuseum Pablo Picasso in Münster. Assembled in the course of more than three decades, this collection is unmatched, impossible to be repeated or recreated as such. Its uniqueness lies in the rarity of its test and state printings, its numerous single specimens and unpublished sheets. The catalogue is the first to list every printed sheet as an individual work and thus constitutes a reliable reference work for Picasso´s lithographic oeuvre. An interview with the printer Henri Deschamps offers an immediate, contemporary account of the process of creation of the sheets, the profound introduction to Picasso´s litographic oeuvre by Erich Franz sharpens the viewer´s eyes for the innovative diversity of this seminal artist.
