Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881-1973)


A series of original lithographs by Picasso showing his stunning images of bull-fighting. The lithographs were issued unsigned for the series: A Los Toros avec Picasso and published by Sauret in 1961. There was an edition of 50 signed examples printed from the same lithographic stones by Mourlot Frères at the same time.

All four are recorded in the Catalogue Raisonné of Picasso's original lithographs and graphic works: Mourlot. Picasso Lithographe, nos 348 and 350 and in Bloch. Picasso L'Oeuvre Gravé, 1014-1017.

The stone for this lithograph was originally drawn in black as were the other three lithographs in the series. However, the publisher, André Sauret asked Picasso if he would add a little colour to the image. Picasso had a box of crayons of 24 different colours and used each of them to colour this image. Much to his surprise the Mourlot studio printers succeeded in the difficult task of printing all 24 colours plus black. This explains the two dates on this print. The black version was drawn 6.3.61 and the colours added 21.4.61.
