Although  Pablo  Picasso  (1881–1973)  is  often  thought  of  as  a  solitary genius, his career was fueled by inspiration he drew from both personal and collegial relationships. Picasso practiced printmaking throughout his career—an  interest  that  inherently  fostered  collaboration,  as  it  brought him in contact with numerous printers and publishers. At the same time, his  many  famous  muses—Marie-Thérèse  Walter,  Dora  Maar,  and  others—influenced both his techniques and his imagery. This book features thirty-five  of  Picasso’s  most  important  prints  that  showcase  the  artistic exchange vital to his process. It includes his first major etching from 1904, portraits  of  his  lovers  and  family  members,  and  prints  that  transform motifs by Rembrandt, Manet, and other earlier artists, such as a version of Rembrandt’s Ecce Homo from 1970. Picasso | Encounters considers the artist’s major statements in printmaking throughout his career.
