ACHICA > Picasso Drawings
Pablo Picasso was one of the most innovative and original artists of the 20th century. He was a master of a range of forms: painting, etching, sketching, sculpture, and mural. His 'one-liners' constitute a small but delightful contribution to the artist's great body of drawings. His pre-eminence as a draughtsman has long been recognised, but the unique nature of his single line drawings have never been fully examined - they still remain quite unexplored. These animal line drawings that we have brought together on the ACHICA fine art platform, offer a fascinating look at the whimsical side of his work. These are illustrations in which the artist's drawing implement touches the paper and is not lifted until the drawing is finished. Each drawing is worth careful study, for by following the vibrant line closely, one's eyes take a wonderful roller-coaster ride across the surface of the paper.
