Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)

Jacqueline in Profile, Turned to the Right

Spain, 1958

Lithograph

 

Picasso met the young divorcée Jacqueline Rocque in 1954 and, eight years later, she became his second wife.

This is one of a series of prints he made of her in the late 1950s, the majority of which depict her bust-length. Picasso has experimented with the traditional method of making a lithograph. Instead of drawing the sitter’s features in black against a white background, he inked the entire stone and scratched through this so the figure emerges in white against a black background.
