Historical Description

Pablo Picasso’s Nature morte au casse-croûte (Still Life with Snacks and Bottle), 1963 is a large-scale linocut, that is one of Picasso’s most fascinating still life portraits. Central to the work, we see a bright sun on the horizon; in the foreground, we see a wonderful spread of snacks and utensils, evoking a typical Mediterranean siesta. The composition is anchored by the large wine bottle which occupies the left border, taking precedence in the fruitful cultures of Spain and France. The negative space of this black and white work helps illuminate the focal points of the work and draws our eye to the composition that has been abstracted and artfully designed in Picasso’s iconic cubist style.

Created in 1962, Pablo Picasso’s Nature morte au casse-croûte (Still Life with Snacks and Bottle), 1963, is a linocut on Arches wove paper. This work is hand signed by Pablo Picasso in pencil in the lower right corner, also signed “Epreuve d’artiste” (artist proof) in pencil in the lower left, aside from the edition of 50.
