Pablo Picasso was a prolific artist. While his art is familiar around the world, today we get a look at a different side of his work. Today we get a look at Pablo Picasso’s Palettes. Here the artist mixed his hues, an important step when creating his work.
His palettes have gone up for auction as part of a larger lot offering a range of his work. The Cubist master himself used the palettes. There are three in total, including two traditional wooden palettes used in 1973. The auction also features a piece of cardboard used in the early 60s. All three have Picasso’s oil paint mixtures still visible and confirmed as authentic by Claude Picasso, the artist’s son. The palettes come from the estate of Marina Picasso, his granddaughter.
