Picasso Lithograph Tauromachie, La Hune
This rare Picasso Lithograph Tauromachie, was produced for an exhibition “Gravures – Lithographies – Empreintes – Céramiques” at La Hune, Paris, 1954.
This is a perfect example of his drawings exhibiting clarity and simplicity. It depicts the black bull and Picasso was once quoted ‘If all the ways I have been along were marked on a map and joined with a line, it might represent a minotaur’. He was certainly a fan of horned creatures, like the bull and the bullfighter, which are repeated images in Picasso’s work, seeming to echo his Spanish roots. Some critics have speculated that Picasso felt many personal parallels with the bull, incorporating it into his work as a symbolic form of self-portrait.
