How to Ship a Painting by Picasso?

For 20+ years, we have shipped literally every type of medium, including oil, watercolor, wax, acrylic, tempera, pastel, and many others. Our trained team of artwork shippers understands the unique fragility inherent to paintings and works on paper, taking special care when it comes to choosing appropriate packing, crating, and transportation methods for each of them. However, while we have extensive experience in shipping artwork of any kind, it is really not often that we get a chance to ship a painting by Pablo Picasso. We are now talking about authentic Picasso’s works that are sold for tens and hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars at auctions around the world.

Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973) is, without a doubt, one of the most important artists of the 20th century, known for his great influence on the world of art. The fact is that this talented painter, sculptor, ceramicist, and printmaker played a crucial role in the invention of constructed sculpture and the foundation of the Cubist movement. Plus, he is also known as a co-inventor of collage and a variety of other artistic styles that are very popular today. No matter whether it comes to drawings, paintings, ceramic sculptures, or anything in between, all Picasso’s works are highly valuable and collectible, even though some of them may look strange. For this reason, it is always a great honor to ship a painting by this influential Spanish artist.

Who can ship a painting by Picasso?

It is needless to say that not every fine art transport company can ship a painting by Pablo Picasso. This delicate job requires the highest level of professionalism and certainly extensive experience in shipping valuable paintings. So if you need to transport such an artwork, always choose reliable and trustworthy art movers like Fine Art Shippers.

Not so long ago, Fine Art Shippers was hired to ship a beautiful painting entitled “Pique (Noir et beige),” which was created by Pablo Picasso in 1959. It was a truly amazing and really rewarding experience for our team as shipping a painting like this is not something that happens every day. Below you can find several photos of this fantastic masterpiece and our team picking it up along with some other artworks from the client’s location in the heart of Manhattan.
