  Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)     Mémoire d'homme    Lithograph printed in black, 1950 Mourlot 187; Cramer 59  A proof outside the edition of 350.  This subject is the sixth of nine lithographs produced by Picasso as illustrations for the first edition of the poem 'De mémoire d'homme' by Tristan Tzara, published by Bordas.  Inscribed by the printer on the verso, 'Picasso / 187/6', in pencil.   Note  Picasso and Tzara had already collaborated on 'L'Antitête' in 1933 when Tzara approached Picasso in 1949 asking him if he would produce the illustrations for his poem 'De Mémoire d'Homme'. Picasso agreed but kept putting off the work until Mourlot paid him a visit in Vallauris on April 16, 1950. This same day, he made the nine lithographs for 'De mémoire d'homme' as well as the cover for the second volume of 'Picasso lithographe'. For both he used the same technique of dipping his finger in ink to create the main shapes of the subjects, before marking their contours with lithographic chalk.

  Pablo Picasso (designed by) (1881-1973)     Vallauris 1953 - Exposition    Linocut printed in black, 1953 Not in Bloch; Not in Baer; Czwiklitzer 68; Art of the Poster 7  Signed in the plate.  In all probability Picasso prepared a drawing for this subject, which was then transferred by photogravure to a zinc plate, which has the same properties as linoleum for printing. Picasso had not yet started to cut lino blocks for posters; his Toros Vallauris 1954 poster was the first of the Vallauris posters for which Picasso actually cut the blocks.  Printed in black on a paper which had been manufactured with stripes of colour. This type of paper was sometimes used for commercial posters and flyers in the 1950s, and Picasso was obviously attracted by its lively character.  Some impressions of this subject were printed on small format paper (68 x 52 cm), others on larger format paper (81 x 59 cm), Czwiklitzer records impressions in both sizes.  According to Czwiklitzer the edition was as many as 2000, but as the subject is now exceptionally rare, it seems likely that there were far fewer impressions, printed and released. Our impression therefore is very scarce, especially with such exceptional fresh colours.  Stamped in ink on the verso, 'Imprimerie Arnéra Archives / Non Signé'.

From the edition of 600, printed by Imprimerie Arnéra and published by the Association des potiers de Vallauris.  Although Baer mentions an edition of 600, impressions of this print are only rarely seen.  Printed on 'Roto Blanc' paper.  Stamped in ink on the verso, "Imprimerie Arnéra Archives / Non Signé".   Note  Picasso designed one 'Exposition Vallauris' poster each year from 1951 to 1964; in 1955, unusually, he produced three such posters, Baer 1030 to 1032. The first variant, Baer 1030, combines the outline of a vase with the traits of a face. The second poster, Baer 1031, represents the head of a Roman faun. In the third variant, Baer 1032, the words "Exposition" (exhibition) and "Vallauris" are connected by a radiant sun, with the letters so arranged that they show the smiling face of the sun - a highly integrated fusion of image and text.

  Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)     Tête de Femme au Chapeau / Paysage avec Baigneurs    Linocut printed in colours, 1962 Not in Bloch; Baer 1284 third state of three, III.A (of III.B) An impression of the third state of three; Baer describes this subject as “Tirage inachevé”.  Stamped in ink on the verso, "Imprimerie Arnéra Archives / Non Signé".  Watermark: Arches   Note  For this linocut Picasso used the reductive method, which requires just one linocut block that is cut and then printed, then cut some more and printed again in another colour on top of the image produced from the last printing. The more colours the artist desires, the more stages of cutting and printing the plate goes through; each time, the amount of raised surface area available to take the ink is reduced. This method means that enough impressions for the entire edition must be printed of the initial state, and each subsequent state is printed over the impressions of the earlier state.  By the time Picasso died, Arnéra had already printed and overprinted the three states the artist had completed. There were already enough impressions for the edition, but Picasso had not signed the impressions or released the group for sale; this is the meaning of the phrase "tirage inachevé" that Baer uses for this subject.  Picasso designed this subject so that it could be read either as "Tête de Femme au Chapeau", the head of a woman (with the short side top and bottom), or as "Paysage avec Baigneurs", a landscape with bathers (with the long side top and bottom). We are not aware of any other of Picasso's prints designed in this way.  The artist also used a different set of colours depending on which way the subject was to be read. For "Paysage avec Baigneurs", Picasso asked Arnéra to print a light brown background, then print the second state in dark chocolate over the first state, and finally, print the third state in red terracotta over the second state. As for "Tête de Femme au Chapeau", Picasso requested Arnéra to twice superimpose the impression of the third state directly on paper, first in dark brown and then in red terracotta.  The version of our impression is that of "Tête de Femme au Chapeau". Baer records ninety-five such impressions, none of them signed by the artist. Baer records one impression in the Arnéra archives.

Note  Picasso and Tzara had already collaborated on 'L'Antitête' in 1933 when Tzara approached Picasso in 1949 asking him if he would produce the illustrations for his poem 'De Mémoire d'Homme'.

This same day, he made the nine lithographs for 'De mémoire d'homme' as well as the cover for the second volume of 'Picasso lithographe'.

In all probability Picasso prepared a drawing for this subject, which was then transferred by photogravure to a zinc plate, which has the same properties as linoleum for printing. Picasso had not yet started to cut lino blocks for posters; his Toros Vallauris 1954 poster was the first of the Vallauris posters for which Picasso actually cut the blocks.  Printed in black on a paper which had been manufactured with stripes of colour. This type of paper was sometimes used for commercial posters and flyers in the 1950s, and Picasso was obviously attracted by its lively character.  Some impressions of this subject were printed on small format paper (68 x 52 cm), others on larger format paper (81 x 59 cm), Czwiklitzer records impressions in both sizes.  According to Czwiklitzer the edition was as many as 2000, but as the subject is now exceptionally rare, it seems likely that there were far fewer impressions, printed and released.

Note  Picasso designed one 'Exposition Vallauris' poster each year from 1951 to 1964; in 1955, unusually, he produced three such posters, Baer 1030 to 1032. The first variant, Baer 1030, combines the outline of a vase with the traits of a face. The second poster, Baer 1031, represents the head of a Roman faun. In the third variant, Baer 1032, the words "Exposition" (exhibition) and "Vallauris" are connected by a radiant sun, with the letters so arranged that they show the smiling face of the sun - a highly integrated fusion of image and text.

Stamped in ink on the verso, "Imprimerie Arnéra Archives / Non Signé".  Watermark: Arches   Note  For this linocut Picasso used the reductive method, which requires just one linocut block that is cut and then printed, then cut some more and printed again in another colour on top of the image produced from the last printing. The more colours the artist desires, the more stages of cutting and printing the plate goes through; each time, the amount of raised surface area available to take the ink is reduced. This method means that enough impressions for the entire edition must be printed of the initial state, and each subsequent state is printed over the impressions of the earlier state.  By the time Picasso died, Arnéra had already printed and overprinted the three states the artist had completed. There were already enough impressions for the edition, but Picasso had not signed the impressions or released the group for sale; this is the meaning of the phrase "tirage inachevé" that Baer uses for this subject.  Picasso designed this subject so that it could be read either as "Tête de Femme au Chapeau", the head of a woman (with the short side top and bottom), or as "Paysage avec Baigneurs", a landscape with bathers (with the long side top and bottom). We are not aware of any other of Picasso's prints designed in this way.  The artist also used a different set of colours depending on which way the subject was to be read. For "Paysage avec Baigneurs", Picasso asked Arnéra to print a light brown background, then print the second state in dark chocolate over the first state, and finally, print the third state in red terracotta over the second state. As for "Tête de Femme au Chapeau", Picasso requested Arnéra to twice superimpose the impression of the third state directly on paper, first in dark brown and then in red terracotta.  The version of our impression is that of "Tête de Femme au Chapeau". Baer records ninety-five such impressions, none of them signed by the artist. Baer records one impression in the Arnéra archives.
