Pablo Picasso has established himself as the most recognizable and transformational artist of all time, not only did he start the modern art movement with his cubist style but created art in all mediums from prints to paintings and even ceramics. This fine artist proof lithograph is entitled "Le Picador II" and depicts one of his most beloved subject matters, bull fighting. Signed in pencil in the lower right "Picasso", this work is also pencil inscribed lower left "epreuve d'artiste" or artist proof. This edition number of this artist proof is unknown but incredibly rare. Displayed in its original highly attractive gold wood frame; the matting and glass has been replaced with museum quality materials to ensure this will remain perfectly conserved when hung.

Fortunately some wonderful provenance accompanies this rare print with three original Picasso gallery tickets as seen in the last images provided. These three tickets alone are an incredible lot themselves as they were for his Madoura pottery gallery in Vallauris, France, not far from Picasso's home during this period. On the backside of one of the tickets the original owner who purchased this from Picasso's Madoura gallery documented the purchase stating the price of purchase, 100 Fracs, title of the work and the date of July 27, 1966. Not only was this lithograph purchased but in addition to about 12 pieces of ceramics. Two types of tickets are included with the first reading:

"Madoura
Suzanne et Georges Ramie
Potiers
Editeurs des Ceramiques
de
Picasso
Exclusivite
Galerie D'Art
Le Plan Vallauris (93) 34 74 93"

While the second ticket reads:

Suzanne et Georges Ramie
Ceramiques, Gravures, Sculptures, Tapisseries
Editions Ceramiques de Picasso
Exclusivite

Telephone : (93) 34 74 93"

The condition of the print is good but their is matt burn from the previous non archival materials from 1966 and it has also been adhered down to a piece of foam board.
