La Bouquinerie de l’Institut exhibits a selection of linocuts by Pablo Picasso as well as some plates of the 347 series or 347 suite. Linoleum brings color to the engraved work of Pablo Picasso. Using a new process (a single platen for all colors) Picasso will also create exhibition posters, portraits or still lifes.
With the suite “des 347” Picasso produces a set of engravings, a sort of artist’s visual diary where all themes that held dear to him are listed. It’s a kind of painter’s view of the world.
Exhibition of the Galeries Parisiennes de l’Estampe et du Dessin
