Picasso's Vollard Suite — Original 1956 Photolithograph Collection

Picasso's Vollard Suite. An original collection of original photolithograph prints of 100 line etchings (some with dry point) created by Pablo Picasso between 1930 and 1937. This compilation, known as the Suite Vollard, was created for Ambroise Vollard (1866(?)-1939), the great French art dealer and publisher of early 20th century modern art. Picasso's mistress, Marie-Therese Walter, was the model for many of these etchings.

Each print offered is from the original, first edition portfolio produced in 1956, on heavy, structured stock. These prints have long been recognized as one of the supreme productions of the master's hand. Arising from Picasso's artistic caprice, from his working experience, or from the very depths of his unconscious, these plates show, more than any of his other works, a man at once inspired by and prey to his dazzling imagination and the demands of his inner demon.
