Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)

Jacqueline in Profile, Turned to the Right

France, 1958

Lithograph

65.5 x 50.5 cm

 

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.
