This original lithographic poster was created for an exhibition of works at the Musée D'Art Moderne in Céret, France, in 1957. This portrait of Spanish Sculptor and Picasso friend, Manolo Huguet, was drawn directly on the stone by the artist and printed by the Atelier Mourlot.
Céret's Art Museum was quite important to Picasso as this commune in the South of France is located just a few miles from the Spanish border. Therefore, it allowed for his compatriots to see his work more easily as he was in exile during the rule of Francisco Franco who died two years after Picasso himself.
This is a fine example of the 55 original posters created by Picasso himself. Ref. Czwiklitzer # 27. Ed. 500.
