During the early 20th Century, Picasso was working alongside George Braque with inspiration from African sculpture to create a new movement that came to be known as cubism. Picasso is commonly recognised as the pioneer for this movement and is the foundation for his fame. Here in Femme Au Balcon, we see Picasso’s cubist elements blend with portraiture to create this image full of colour and life.
Leaning against the curved railing of the balcony, the model in this print is depicted through a series of shapes and forms of varying colours layered over one another. A typical example of Pablo Picasso’s work, this print demonstrates the artist’s ability to manipulate perspective and create unique views of his subjects.
This original lithograph forms part of the Marina Picasso Estate Lithograph Collection, which has been hand-printed by a traditional multi-plate method using one single plate for each colour. This work of art was produced under the strict supervision of the famous Chromist, Laurent Marcel Salinas (1913-2010) who was a Master Printer in his own right and worked very closely with Pablo Picasso throughout his life and produced some of the artist`s finest original prints. This Special Edition was limited to 1,000 copies which was published and released between 1979 and 1982. - several years after the artist’s death - as a posthumous edition.
