Description

Colescott was fascinated by Pablo Picasso's last major production of prints in 1968, when the artist was in his late eighties. Working in Mougins, France, with printers Aldo and Piero Crommelynck, the trio published 347 prints over the course of just six months, many of them focused on the erotic nature of the painter-model relationship.

Red Grooms tackled this subject in a three-dimensional lithograph in this exhibition; a sheet from Picasso's Suite 347 is on display in the previous gallery.
