Head of a Faun

Head of a Faun


Head of a Faun


Picasso searched for the principles and the artistic expression which had held society together for nearly two thousand years in the aftermath of World War I. He began borrowing mythological creatures from Greek and Roman mythology; fauns, satyrs, minotaurs, and gods filled his works. Created around 1958 and hand signed by Picasso, this etching captures the mysterious and mischievous character of fauns, as they were a mythological half-goat, forest people. They were the infamous followers of the Greek god Pan; the lord of shepherds, nature, and hunting.
