Picasso. Printmaking as Experiment - Städel Museum

Picasso. Printmaking as Experiment - Städel Museum

June 05, 2019

The Städel Museum’s Department of Prints and Drawings devotes an exhibition titled “Picasso. Printmaking as Experiment” specifically to Pablo Picassos (1881–1973) graphic oeuvre. Featuring more than sixty etchings, lithographs and linoleum cuts, the exhibition presents a selection from the holdings of the Städel Museum’s Department of Prints and Drawings, enhanced by a small number of loans from the Museum Ludwig in Cologne and a private collection. The selection vividly illustrates the full range and development of Picasso’s graphic oeuvre from the early years in Paris to his late work.

Whether etching, drypoint, lithography, or linocut, with never-dwindling curiosity and virtuosity, Picasso gained expertise in a wide variety of printmaking techniques, always questioning what he had found in new and experimental ways. The exhibition is structured according to the various printing techniques, which are always closely linked to the artist’s biography. The print series “Suite Vollard”, which Picasso created between 1930 and 1937 and with which he made full artistic use of the diversity of intaglio printing techniques, has its own section within the exhibition.

Exhibition Dates: Until 30th June 2019

Exhibition Hours: Tuesday to Sunday 10am–6pm | Thursday & Friday until 9pm

Venue: Städel Museum, Schaumainkai 63, 60596 Frankfurt am Main
