Fun Fact

Although Ambroise Vollard commissioned this print from Picasso in 1930, it was not printed until the 1939, the year of Vollard’s death.


This print belongs to a series of 100 that the dealer Ambroise Vollard commissioned from Picasso during the 1930s. Picasso worked with master printer Roger Lacourière, experimenting with a range of etching techniques. Many of the prints, such as this one, feature a stark, linear style evocative of classical art that Picasso favored during this period. Here, a nude sculpture and heavily bearded face further suggest ancient Greece.
