For a deeper look into the detail of Pablo Picasso’s still lifes, consider Remai Modern’s collection of working proofs, part of their collection of Picasso linocuts. Anatomy of a Still Life is on through April, 2020 at the Saskatoon gallery.
One extraordinary example, Nature morte à la pastèque (Still Life with Watermelon) includes 14 different working states to create an eight-colour linocut. This exhibition presents a tantalizing selection of still lifes, known in French as nature morte, created by Picasso in 1962.
