The goal of this exhibition is to show how passion for printmaking was expressed over three generations of a family. Pablo Picasso, J. Fín, Vilató and Xavier are four profoundly different artistic personalities. In the work of all four there is an important part done in printing workshops, which is too important to be considered merely something on the side. In this exhibition we discover their veritable passion for working in a technique requiring time and complex technique, made possible through the know-how of the accompanying printer.

Just as well, this exhibit allows us to discover how this story really began when Picasso took his nephews J. Fín and Vilató to the Lacourière Frélaut studio in 1939. It would continue when Vilató took his own son Xavier when he was still quite young. The saga continues to this day through the work of Xavier, who habitually works in chalcography and lithography workshops.

This exhibition features 166 works, including an important representation of the print holdings of the Museu Picasso, as well as an essential collaboration from the Vilató family. The curator of the exhibition is Marta-Volga de Minteguiaga-Guezala.
