A RARE vintage lithograph print created by Modern artist Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) Spain. The lithographic print is titled "Le Taureau Noir" (The Black Bull) and was completed by Picasso on April 20, 1947 while the artist was located in Paris. The artwork was created as a lithographic print on Arches paper. The print was created during the time period when Picasso completed lithographs "Nature More aux Verre et Fleurs" and "Figure". The lithograph is signed "Picasso" at the lower left-hand corner and is dated "Dimanche 20.4.47", which is a reference to the date for completion of the artwork by Picasso on Sunday, April 20th, 1947. The print was produced by the stone lithography process which explains the reverse date that appears on the artwork at the lower right-hand corner. The information written in pencil "Epreu d Artiste" indicates that this particular lithograph is an artist's proof which would be a trial print produced before the final image is approved for printing by the artist. This RARE vintage Picasso Lithograph print has been professionally appraised by Shelly Hall at Art Appraisal Resources in Portland Oregon.
