Fundacio Juan March: Picasso Grabados

 

This gallery is dedicated to the rotating exhibitions of Picasso´s grafic work belonging to the permanent collection deposited in the Fundacio Juan March.

Picasso always gave great importance to the art of printmaking. He employed this medium through all of his life, but in the 30s he executed several series of etchings that were immediately recognized as among the most significant creations in the history of printmaking.

The above prints demonstrate Picasso’s interest in the old masters, particularly in the figure of Rembrandt. Picasso converts the celebrated 17th century painter and engraver into a character, reinterpreting the singular style of the Dutch master and setting him against the classicism that he himself practiced.
