Picasso Linocuts at the Lever Art Gallery (Port Sunlight)


Picasso Linocuts from the British Museum

Lady Lever Art Gallery
Port Sunlight, Wirral

24 June 2016 – 8 January 2017

17 linocuts from three experimental series created by Picasso in 1962: Jacqueline Reading, portraying Picasso’s recent bride Jacquline Rocque; the rare entire set of progressive proofs of Still Life under the Lamp; and key prints from the Nude Woman at a Spring series, which was inspired by a figure in Manet’s Déjeuner sur l’Herbe. The first two sets were acquired by the British Museum in 2013 and this display is the first time that they have been shown outside London.
The display is accompanied by a brief video of an interview with Hidalgo Arnéra, Picasso’s collaborator in the production of his technically complex linocuts.
