Picasso Lithographe II. 1947-1949 [FRENCH CATALOGUE]

WAS £100.00 £50.00

Product description

This mammoth 2-volume work by Fernand Mourlot appeared in 1950, representing as complete a catalogue as possible at the time of all Picasso's works in lithography - a field for which he had enormous affection. A multiplicity of illustrations in both black & white and in colour offer a wonderful introduction to this aspect of the great artist's work.

Fernand Mourlot (1895–1988) was the director of Mourlot Studios and founder of Editions Mourlot. Between 1923 and 1930, the firm printed many illustrated books, leading eventually to an important and long lasting cooperation between Mourlot and the director of the French National Museums. Posters for the centenary of Romanticism and a retrospective of Delacroix's work at the Musée du Louvre were followed in 1932 by a poster for an exhibition of Édouard Manet's work at the Musée de l'Orangerie, and in 1934, a poster of Honoré Daumier's work at the Bibliothèque Nationale. In October 1945, encouraged by Henri Matisse and Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso met Fernand Mourlot and the artist decided to dedicate himself to lithography. Thus began a collaboration with the Mourlot studio that would last almost 30 yers and produce over 400 different graphic images and editions.

Our volume (the second of this edition) is in good condition, but sadly lacks the hand printed lithographs by the artist himself which originally formed the outer cover and the frontispiece. The plain cream paper cover remaining is clean considering its age, with only one noticeable (but small) stain on the back. Apart from this deficiency, it shows few signs of external wear, and retains a black & white cover to the spine. Inside, the binding is firm, and all pages are clean and only lightly browned. Any student of Picasso's work would find an inexhaustible mine of interest here.
