Lot description
"Nature Morte (Still Life)", hand pulled color lithograph, signed in the stone, lower left. This image shows Picasso’s use of the Cubist vernacular: a newspaper, a guitar, and a bottle of Bass.

From the "Douze Contemporains" portfolio. Executed in the studios of Daniel Jacomet, Published and printed by Editions D'art du Lion in France 1959. From an unnumbered edition. Size approx. 13 x 18 in. bleed. Includes original paper folder with the artist's name and title printed on cover.

Specially selected from a portfolio containing 12 works by important 20th century masters.

In late 1906, Picasso started to paint in a truly revolutionary manner. Inspired by Cézanne's flattened depiction of space, and working alongside his friend Georges Braque, he began to express space in strongly geometrical terms. These initial efforts at developing this almost sculptural sense of space in painting are the beginnings of Cubism.
