Arches paper cut by hand.
S.P.A.D.E.M., Paris, 1973.

* Sometimes, the artist drew a mark or figure on the edge of the stone or litho plate to test how the acid would react. This mark was usually destroyed before printing, but sometimes remained, not just on the test print but on the entire print series. This is a case in point.

Pablo Ruiz y Picasso, more simply known as Pablo Picasso (Malaga, October 25th, 1881 – Mougins, April 8th, 1973), was a Spanish painter and sculptor, and one of the most influential of the 20th century.

A crucial intersection between 19th century tradition and contemporary art, Picasso was an innovative and versatile artist who left an indelible mark on the history of art as the founder - together with Georges Braque - of Cubism. Following a rather tormented childhood - which is clearly expressed in his paintings from the so-called blue and pink periods - he shot to fame in the 1920s; his universally-renowned works include "Les demoiselles d'Avignon" (1907) and "Guernica" (1937).

* the term after means a graphic work created after the artist's death using an original plate.
