Original linoprint, 8-layers reduction cut. Limited edition of 9 prints. Reduction technique was developed by Picasso as a way of making a multi-layered linocut from a single block. The block is carved and then printed in the first colour, it is then cleaned, carved again and printed in the second colour and so on. At each stage of the process the size of the printing area is reduced, hence the name. With this cutting method, the block of lino is destroyed in the process so the edition can never be reprinted.
