Suite Vollardcomprises 100 etchings done by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) between 1930 and 1937. Picasso's dealer and publisher, Ambroise Vollard, was given 97 of the copper etching plates by Picasso in 1937 in trade for some paintings by other artists, and Picasso later created three etchings of Vollard himself to bring the total number of plates to 100. The whole series as presented here displays Picasso's infectious enjoyment of and experimentation with printmaking through the great variety of etching techniques he deploys, starting with line etching in most cases, then adding drypoint and later aquatint and, for the final images in the series, mastering the technique known as sugar lift. With virtuoso skill, Picasso develops his themes--the battle of love, the sculptor's studio, Rembrandt, the Minotaur--while tipping his hat to Neoclassicism. Please note text is German only.
