    About The Work

    In the late sixties, while in his ninth decade, Pablo Picasso created a group of etchings known as the 347 Series. Printed between March 16and October 5th, 1968, Picassco collaborated with master printers Piero and Aldo Crommelynck, who transported a special press from their atelier in Paris in 1963 to Picasso’s studio near Cannes. Produced as a rejection of conceptual, avant-garde theories, this iconic series exemplifies aesthetic beauty, technical merit and art historical reference. In Conversation, two figures in dialogue can just barely be distinguished from large swipes of black ink.
