Montblanc Reveals New Pablo Picasso Limited Edition Pens
Montblanc has unveiled two new artisan edition Pablo Picasso limited edition pens. In honor of the Spanish painter and sculptor, Montblanc has created a very unique and creative writing instrument that celebrates his lifetime of achievements.
Beyond his surrealism and cubism paintings he was also a literary inspiration. Between 1935 and 1959 he was a writer of uncontainable passion. His works did not fit any particular category nor did he worry about the rules of grammar. The influential artist wrote three theatrical works as well as 300 poems in the form of a diary that ranged from simple prose to short stories.
The two pens released to pay homage to Pablo Picasso are the Artisan Edition Pablo Picasso Limited Edition 39 and Artisan Edition Pablo Picasso Limited Edition 91. Both pens were created to share design characteristics and his recognition in the cubist movement as well as his other varieties of works. The aesthetics of the pen was mainly derived by the writings of Picasso and the drawing “Portrait de jeune fille” from 1936, while the shape of the fountain pens is based upon the shape of a pencil and the engraving is based on his famous drawing “Ojo”.
Limited edition of 91 features the 18k gold skeletonised cap and has an opening that allows the 18k rhodium plated gold nib to be seen. Comments and outlines of Picasso’s famous work, “Portrait de jeune fille” are engraved in black. The shape of the black lacquered body mimics the shape of a pencil that Picasso drew his sketches with. The cap is embellished with the Montblanc emblem made from mother-of-pearl. Picasso’s Spanish background is also featured and the end of the barrel with lacquered red bands between the bands of 18k gold. Only 91 units are available as a tribute to the number of years that the artist lived.
The second fountain pen, Limited edition of 31 also features a 18k gold cap with engravings in black about his work “Portrait de jeune fille” while the clip also reflects the portrait of the same work. The barrel mimicking the shape of the pencil is grey lacquered. The 18k gold rhodium plated nib can be seen from the opening of the cap and is decorated with the engravings of his famous work “Ojo”. The montblanc “star” can be found in the upper part of the cap. Limited to only 39 units which also stands as a representation of the number of drawings and paintings of Sylvette David, Picasso’s muse.
