Print from by Pablo Picasso. Numbered from the edition of 50, each signed by the artist in pencil, lower right: Picasso.

Still Life under the Lamp, from 1962, made when the artist was eighty years old, are counted among Picasso’s most important works in linocut, a technique that he explored in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The progressive proofs show the step by step sequence by which Picasso created his linocut images showing the development of the image into its final form.
