For me, this is Picasso at his most introspective, reflective, creative phase demonstrating his love for Claude`s mother and the enduring love for Marie-Therese. 1948 was a pivotal year in Picasso`s developement of intaglio in his paintings and ceramics. Perhaps, one of the happiest times in his life, as shown in Claude`s face and body. 02 October

I have a large litho ( around 28" tall 23" wide) of Picasso's Mother Child 4 hands study but it's different than any other I've found. Fist off, it's a 3 color litho. It's also on Montvall laid paper on board. The print definitely has age to it but obviously no way to tell how old. I have looked for various water marks but haven't found any. Being laid paper on board makes it difficult. I had originally thought it may be printed in France by La Photolithography L Delaporte. Basically because the size was about the same and the 3 print colors were the same. However, the Mother Child litho doesn't have the information located at the bottom margin of the print like others I've seen. So after all that any thoughts?'
