One of the last images in the catalog raisonné, " Picasso at Mougins " was commissioned by the Print Club of New York for its members and offered to the membership in September of 2002.

Curator Mary Weaver Chapin notes in the catalog raisonné, page 305:

" Colescott was drawn to this subject after reading an article by Pat Gilmore in the June 2001 issue of ' Print Quarterly' . the article explored Pablo Picasso 's last major production of prints in 1968, when he was in his late eighties. Working in Mougins, France with printers Aldo and Piero Crommelynk , the trio published 347 prints over the course of just six months ."

Colescott captures this remarkable achievement with his usual panache. The printers, the artist, friends, family, model, critics, hangers-on and friends all drop by the busy studio.

The Print Club of New York owns the canceled printing plates and the progressive proofs for 'Picasso at Mougins .'
