One of the most renowned graphic artists of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso (1881 - 1973) stands alone by virtue of the immense scope of his oeuvre.
From the early etchings of the Saltimbanques Suite and his cubist compositions to the later playful lithographs, his visionary work is both deeply personal and exceedingly creative.
He experimented continually, vigorously, and sometimes abusively with all known techniques, occasionally inventing some of his own in the process.
