Picasso Linocuts - British Museum

Pablo Picasso, Still Life under the Lamp, 1962
Two linocuts by Picasso, along with the progressive proofs, have been acquired by the British Museum and are on display until 6 May 2014.
Both prints, the monochrome Jacqueline Reading, and the absolutely gorgeous Still Life under the Lamp, date from 1962 when Picasso was 81.  
Watch a video explaining Picasso's method devised for Still Life which was made by progressively cutting and printing from the same block rather than cutting a block for each colour. Read the Museum's press release.
