BULL! by Bob Kessel


BULL! by Bob Kessel

Bob Kessel has created a new print titled, “BULL!” based on the works of Pablo Picasso. The picture is available as limited edition fine art print, signed and numbered by the artist. Contact Bob Kessel for prices and availability.

Pablo Picasso created ‘Bull’ in 1945. ‘Bull’ is a suite of lithographs that have become a master class in how to develop an artwork from the academic to the abstract. In this series of images, Picasso starts with a classical rendering of a bull. Then in a series of progressive steps, reduces it to pure abstraction.

Bob Kessel takes a slightly different tack, placing the different levels of abstraction in the same picture. A Picasso linoleum block print style bull looks at his Mondrianesque abstracted image in an oval mirror.
