Apres la Pique, a 1962 linocut print by Pablo Picasso, is the highlight of Bonhams' prints and multiples sale on October 22.
Linocut was initially developed as a fine art medium by Picasso and Matisse, who pioneered a reductive method that resulted in the destruction of the plate after it was used, making each set unique.
This example comes to the San Francisco sale with a $40,000-60,000 estimate.
