Picasso makes Saskatoon Home

405 Picasso Linoprints Donated

Opening to the public in 2016, Remai Modern is a direction-setting modern art museum taking shape at River Landing in downtown Saskatoon, Canada. Inspired by the local landscape and the rich history of architectural modernism, the renowned Canadian architectural firm KPMB has designed a 130,000-square-foot museum that will be an architectural centre piece for the city. The museum will be a vibrant, imaginative and prescient institution committed to affirming the powerful role that art and artists play in questioning, interpreting and defining the modern era. REMAI GALLERY RECEIVES EXTRAORDINARY DONATION OF PICASSO PRINTS What are the key facts about the Picasso print collection? • The collection includes 405 Picasso linocuts: 193 of the 197 linocut subjects, and 212 working proofs. • Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) made the prints between 1951 and 1965. • The collection was purchased by the Frank and Ellen Remai Foundation for the Remai Art Gallery of Saskatchewan. • The print collection has become part of the Gallery’s permanent collection, bringing the total collection in the public trust to nearly 7,500 artworks. • The Picasso works, valued at $20 million, double the value of the permanent collection. This is one of the more significant donations of modern art to a Canadian public gallery. • The Picasso gift features an extensive collection of printer’s proofs, mainly from Picasso’s master printer, Hidalgo Arnera.
