Picasso (1881-1973) is, of course, one of the most famous artists, his name synonymous for many people with twentieth century art. Personally, I find much of his art more interesting than appealing, but he was certainly prolific enough that everybody ought to be able to find at least a few of his pieces they really enjoy! One of his pieces that I really enjoy is this linoleum block print.
states. Looking at it, however, I'm not sure how that technique produced the red and green printed without any overlap. Of course, one thing Picasso was a real master of was experimentation, so it would hardly be surprising that he and his printer Arnèra came up with plenty of techniques that I haven't thought of! Here's an interesting image of the final state of the block, printed in black only. For once I don't like it better than the color version! For once it definitely looks like only a small part of the whole.
I like lots of things about this "Still Life by Lamplight," especially the design of the goblet and the patterns of the red and yellow light, but my favorite thing of all is the lightbulb and the starry glow around it.
