Pablo Picasso
(Spanish, 1881-1973)
Toros en Vallauris, 1954
Linocut on thin wove paper
29 1/2" x 31 3/4" (sight)

Hand-signed in red crayon in the image to the right of the toreador. From the signed edition of 100 impressions (there was also a contemporaneous unsigned edition of 140), printed by Hidalgo Arnera and published by Association des Potiers de Vallauris. Presented behind plexiglass in a frame that measures 43" x 45".


Good condition. The sheet is hinged to backing posterboard with six pieces of archival tape: two to the top, two to the bottom, and two folded behind the center of the sheet. The sheet shows a little bit of mild folding toward some of the margins. Margins measure 1/2" to 3/4" on all sides. The frame has several chips along the edges.
