Diurnes - Decoupage et Photographie
Original photogram collotype from Diurnes.

A suite of 30 black and white photogram collotypes, machine-numbered on verso, each in paper cover with printed caption.

Each of the 30 images is a collaborative work, Picasso's cut-ups interacting with Viller's photographs.

Picasso and Villers, fascinated by the richness of their place of residence, Provence, embarked on an intense creative process which would lead to the suite Diurnes.

A photogram is a photographic image made without a camera by placing objects directly onto the surface of a light-sensitive material such as photographic paper and then exposing it to light.
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.
