Picasso’s Vollard Suite

Four Nudes and Sculpted Head

Picasso has always been a favorite artist of mine. The 100 etchings he created for publisher Ambroise Vollard from 1930 to 1937 are ranked, for me, among Picasso’s highest artistic achievements.

Anna and I spent some time in San Francisco in the early summer of 2009. While we were there we visited a gallery downtown that had a few pieces from the Vollard Suite, including “Four Nudes and Sculpted Head”. Beautiful. I still think about it all the time, and hope that I will meet more of these etchings soon (especially Minotauromachia!).
