Femme nue debout
Picasso Pablo Femme nue debout 1963 B. 1107; Ba. 1338 25 1/4" x 20 3/4" Linocut in color on Arches wove paper. Signed in pencil lower right and numbered. From the Arabic numbered edition of 50 examples (20 artist proofs also exist). Published by Galerie Louise Leiris Paris. From Baer's second state B (of four). Picasso's use of the medium of the linoleum block as a matrix for his original printmaking derived from his desire to find a technique that would allow him to immediately create and pull his own proofs. He left Paris to live in the south of France in 1958 and there began to experiment with the technique of the linoleum cut a medium used locally to create posters to advertise the local bull fights. He eventually devised a revolutionary method as used in this work where he would continue to carve and print from the same block as he added each successive color. In effect reducing the matrix while creating the printed image. Although created over a period of only 5 years Picasso's linocuts have become amongst his most desirable and historically important graphic works.
