The Cincinnati Art Museum presents Picasso Prints, an exhibition on view through May 13, 2012.

Pablo Picasso, Two Clowns, 1954. Color lithograph. Museum Purchase, 1955.767.

Picasso’s ingenious magic with etching, lithography and linocuts is explored in six decades of printmaking. This exhibition presents the prodigious invention of Pablo Picasso in the medium of printmaking. The works selected from the Art Museum’s permanent collection reveal his dialogue with old masters of European art, his Spanish heritage, and the highly autobiographical content of images of wives and lovers.

Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso, known as Pablo Picasso, (25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, and stage designer, one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century. He is widely known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore.
