Pablo Picasso Drawing in Colour Exhibition at Remai Modern

Published on May 4, 2021

Until June 6, 2021

Remai Modern holds the most complete set of Pablo Picasso’s linocuts in the world and is delighted to present an exhibition that shows Picasso’s mind at work. Picasso’s appetite for technical challenges was matched by Hidalgo Arnéra, his young printer. The two men were driven by similar values: imagination, mutual respect and love of a job well done.

This chronological exhibition demonstrates Picasso’s innovation and ingenuity in mastering printing in colour, which he achieved through both the one-block-per-colour method and the reductive technique. Spanning the years 1955 to 1968, Drawing in Colour follows the various stages of Picasso’s process with linocut prints, which are presented alongside ceramics that he created in the same period, thereby highlighting the role of collaboration in his oeuvre.
