The technique of the linocut has a prominent role within the oeuvre of Pablo Picasso. Especially during the 1950s and 1960s, Picasso dealt intensively with the linocut and exploited all the possibilities which were offered him by this medium. Originally considered a substitute for the often difficult to handle woodcut, the linocut was preferred by some artists at the beginning of the 20th century. Picasso took up the almost forgotten technique again and by means of it developed a special body of works containing some of this most notable compositions. Between 1958 and 1963, a unique oeuvre of mostly colored prints of several linoleum plates was created, which must exclusively be attributed to the genius of Pablo Picasso.
