Historical Description

Pablo Picasso Tête de Femme (Head of a Woman), 1962 is an  exquisite linocut realized in rich tones of brown, red, beige and black. A cubist portrait of a Jacqueline Roque, Picasso's companion and muse till his death, showcases her large eyes, strong eyebrows, and mass of dark hair. Jacqueline's striking features are chopped and moved, re-combined into a dancing arrangement that shows us all sides of her face at once, unconstrained by the visual limits a regular portrait would have presented.

Created in 1962, this color linocut on Arches paper is hand-signed by Pablo Picasso (Malaga, 1881 – Mougins, 1973) in pencil in the lower right. Numbered  from the edition of 50 in pencil in the lower left; this work was published by Louise Leiris, Paris and printed by Arnéra, Vallauris.
