Considered to be one of Picasso’s monumental linoleum prints, Picador debout avec son cheval et une femme (Picador, Woman, and Horse), 1959, is a large-scale artwork that captures the essence of this artist’s innovation and minimalist creativity.  His simple lines curve and undulated together to form the characters of the piece: the woman – feminine and robust, the horse – whimsical and characteristic, and the picador – strong and masculine.  All three subjects create a triad composition making way for a harmonious and balanced piece.  The entire work exudes an air of femininity and mystery, all set against a backdrop of a misty grey helping to create Picasso’s sensual environment of intrigue.

Created in 1959, this color linocut on Arches paper is hand signed by Pablo Picasso (Malaga, 1881 – Mougins, 1973) in pencil in the lower right margin. Numbered from the edition of 50 in pencil in the lower left margin; printed by Arnéra, Vallauris and published by Galerie Louise Leiris, Paris.
