Picasso’s ingenious magic with etching, lithography and linocuts is explored in six decades of printmaking. This exhibition presents the prodigious invention of Pablo Picasso in the medium of printmaking. The works selected from the Art Museum’s permanent collection reveal his dialogue with old masters of European art, his Spanish heritage, and the highly autobiographical content of images of wives and lovers.
