Lithographic poster, printed and published in 1966 by Print Union. Paris 1966, Imprimerie Union, Paris.

With text by René Char. When it was decided in 1965 to build a nuclear launch station on the Albion plateau not far from Apt and Céreste (France), to which he had remained very attached since the years of resistance, René Char did not hesitate to quickly organise demonstrations against the project and to publish a small booklet in which he vehemently denounced the nuclear threat.

The poster of the same name was printed the following year, in February, with a revised text and an illustration by Picasso.
Pablo Picasso PortraitPablo Picasso was born in Spain in 1881 and was to become the most famous, versatile, prolific and influential artist of the 20th Century. The son of a painting and drawing master, he was remarkably precocious, mastering academic draughtsmanship when still a child. By the 1920s Picasso had established himself as a world famous painter and his reputation and status continued to grow.

It is our good fortune that Picasso had such a great love of printmaking. By the time he died in 1973 he had produced a substantial body of original etchings, lithographs and linocuts, which rank with the greatest prints of the 20th Century. While the ownership of an original painting is, for the majority of us, out of the question, his original prints made in small editions remain relatively accessible.
