Pablo Picasso Vallauris Painting and Light, Tenth Anniversary, 1964;  audacious and mesmerizing, this Picasso linocut captivates its audience by featuring a complex figure, formed by snake-like lines. With a brown, yellow and ivory glow, this work creates a simplistic, yet engaging composition. Quirky line work and playful coloration entice the viewer and enhance the design elements in this work. In common cubist style works by Picasso, we are shown a compelling rendering of facial features ingeniously arranged to create this remarkable character. This work was created for the 10th Anniversary of the Vallauris Exposition.

Created in 1964, this color linocut on Arches paper is printed and published by Arnéra, Vallauris. Hand signed by Pablo Picasso (Malaga, 1881 - Mougins, 1973) in green crayon in the lower right margin, this work is numbered from the edition of 185 in pencil in the lower left margin.
