“By almost any standard, Picasso could be considered the most influential printmaker of the 20th century. The majority of his vast graphic oeuvre of over 2000 unique images consists of intaglio prints that he scratched, scraped, gouged, or etched into a copper plate, before he switched to lithography and color relief printing later in his career. Working in close collaboration with some of the best master printers of his generation, Picasso vigorously explored technical innovations that not only fuelled his graphic imagination but also expanded the possibilities of printmaking as an expressive art form.” Ref: Princeton University Art Museum.
