  • james shunk asked

    what was the media and style used for still life under the lamp

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Hi James, the medium/technique is linocut (with colored ink). The style is typical for Picasso in the 50s and 60s, I would call it a kind of abstracted figuration. Kind regards, Els

  • Claudio asked

    hi i would ask the theorical price of the painting whit the original signature of Pablo Picasso

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Claudio, in the museum we are not working with the financial value of the art works but with their cultural and (art)historical value. When you need to know the financial value of a work in your possession, you could best contact a specialized art dealer or an auction house. Kind regards, Els

  • vicki asked

    What was 'Still life under the lamp' about?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Hi Vicki, in this case the main reason for making the artwork lies not so much in 'meaning' but in 'form'; a style called Cubism, which Picasso developed together with George Braque.
