I'm reading a book about Picasso. Here is what was inventoried from all of his houses, apartments, vaults, etc. after his death. (And it took 4 years to catalogue everything by the way.)

•1,885 paintings
•7,089 drawings
•1,228 sculptures
•6,112 lithographs
•2,800 ceramics
•18,095 engravings
•3,181 prints
•149 books containing 4,659 drawings and sketches
•8 carpets and 11 tapestries

These are just the works he had in his possession. This doesn't count everything he sold or gave away throughout his life. And I think I'm doing good if I manage to get a couple of print editions out in a semester! ha!
