Pablo Picasso & His Linocuts
Pablo Picasso’s output is heralded as evidence of his innovation and genius as a Modern Master. No matter what method or medium, the artist tackled every effort with vigor and inquisition. As a painter, Picasso moved through styles with unmatchable creativity and expertise, yet his engagement with graphic works is equally inspiring. Picasso began his methods as a peintre-graveur with etching, and continued to move through the graphic landscape working in lithography, but it is his later work in linoleum cuts (linocuts) where his artistry excelled. Desirable for their boldly graphic compositions, delightful use of ornamental patterns, expressive treatment of color, and superior handling of line, Picasso’s linoleum cuts are collectible for their handsome imagery, and as relics of the artist’s pioneering spirit.
While it is perhaps impossible to pinpoint an exact chronological start to the artist’s revolutionary practice with linoleum cuts, by understanding the particular qualities of the process it becomes clear why he could be become so fond of the method. Linoleum cuts are a type of relief printmaking in which the artist-engraver cuts into a block and the remaining negative surface is inked and printed. Hidalgo Arnéra, the master printer who collaborated with Picasso during his stay in Vallauris starting in 1947, suggested the artist use linoleum as a fast and economical means of producing posters.
The beauty in using linoleum for an artist is that it is lightweight compared to wood or metal as it is made up of renewable materials which also makes it is easier to cut. Unlike etching and lithography, no chemicals are required in the relief process as the sheet is gouged down which makes for a more efficient method. In such a simple process, there is a physical encounter between the artist and his matrix that is uniquely afforded to relief prints. The outcome of which is a brilliantly rich color that can only be achieved from the inked linoleum block. One could easily imagine that Picasso would appreciate the activity of gouging the linoleum and choosing colors, extracting a brute expressiveness and control that feels direct and corporeal.
Picasso took to linoleum cuts with enthusiasm and artistry, but also with his typical inquisitive ability. His artistic offerings establish Picasso as an accomplished master of graphic arts of the 20st century, but his technical achievements in printmaking, including but not limited to the process of “reductive” linocuts, make him the principal visionary in the advancement of the linoleum cut method. For reductive linoleum cuts, a single block is used to print multiple layers of color. After each layer is printed, the block is successively carved away. This method lends itself to the exact registration and accuracy Picasso desired, whilst constraining his art editions to a finite amount of impressions. A reductive linocut is impossible to edition more than once.
Picasso produced over 100 linoleum cuts over a period of more than a decade and in this medium of printmaking, Picasso achieved such an excellence in his visual language and his technical advancement of the process that it’s hard to picture a collection without one of these works. Much like his work in ceramics, his familiarity with his favorite motifs and subjects lent him free range of expression as he explored the capabilities, pushing the boundaries of creation. Powerful, evocative, and unmistakably his own, Picasso’s linocuts will be forever acclaimed and collected for their distinct appeal.
