Artistic genius Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973) co-founded Cubism and produced a monumental 20,000 artworks during his 70-year career. Picasso’s torrential outpouring of work was so extensive and complex that art historians have divided it into individual periods. A prodigy in his youth, Picasso enrolled in advanced classes at Barcelona’s Royal Academy of Art at age 15. The strong geometric forms of his groundbreaking Cubist works redefined art as a medium that could digress from literal images of reality. Passionately creative in every genre from primitive art to sketches to Surrealism, Picasso profoundly impacted 20th century art.
Picasso's Visage de la Paix is the eleventh in a series of 29 drawings that Picasso completed in December of 1950. The face has a free joyous style and shows Picasso's renewed energy and his political commitment. Since Guernica he had campaigned unceasingly in favor of pacifism. The transfert d'art is an exclusive adhesive screen-print produced from Picasso's Le Visage de la Paix (1950) drawing. It replicates the exact quality of the drawing. The image is on transparent film, so when it is applied, only what Picasso has drawn is transferred. It can be applied to any clean, smooth surface but cannot be repositioned. This is a unique way to add an affordable do-it-yourself design impact to any space.
