Larchmont art lovers will be afforded an intimate view of Pablo Picasso prints at PGartventure Gallery in Larchmont from April 29 through May 22, 2009.
The exhibition is a unique opportunity to see 34 original prints created throughout Picasso’s life, all drawn from the artist’s personal collection and now part of Marina Picasso’s private collection. Among the pieces presented are rare original aquatints and etchings – including prints known to have very few impressions – and unique 1956 linoleum cut reworked by Picasso with India ink.
The exclusive show is curated by Emmanuel Benador, a world recognized authority on Picasso’s prints. He is the author of several books, including Picasso: Printmaker: A Perpetual Metamorphosis, Rembrandt and Picasso: Tales of lights and lines and Closer to Nature: Gauguin and Picasso.
“Pablo Picasso: Innovator as Master Printmaker”
Original Prints from 1927 to 1971
Wednesday, April 29 – Friday May 22, 2009
Opening reception : April 29 from 6 -8pm
“Picasso, an innovator and master of graphic arts, is regarded as the greatest printmaker of his era,” commented Mr. Benador. “Picasso like no other artists wanted to differentiate his prints from his drawings or from his paintings because it was a source of constant inspiration and challenge. Picasso changed not only the way of looking at art but also changed dramatically certain printmaking techniques.”
“The exhibition will showcase Picasso as the foremost printmaker of the 20th century, a talent less known about the artist,” remarked Pascale Goldenstein, owner of PGartventure.
The public is invited to the opening reception on Wednesday, April 29 from 6 pm to 8 pm. The gallery will be open Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon to 5 pm and by appointment. Prices range from $2,500 to $52,000.
Pascale Goldenstein thanked the artist’s granddaughter, Marina Picasso, for her generosity and extended her appreciation to Galerie Jan Krugier & Cie, of Geneva, Switzerland, and to Emmanuel Benador for their support and collaboration.
