Head of a Woman features Picasso’s longest love, Jacqueline Rocque. Jacqueline met Picasso in 1953 when she worked at the potter’s studio where he made ceramics in the South of France. The couple married in 1963, and they remained together until the artist’s death in 1973. Some historians have dubbed this Picasso’s Jacqueline Epoch, as Jacqueline’s black hair and youthful face fill some of his most important works. Here, she is featured with long flowing hair, a broad rimmed hat, and bright cheerful eyes. This is a charming and enigmatic portrait of Picasso’s beloved wife. This is one of most important Picasso’s we have been able to offer to our collectors. Portraits of Jacqueline by Picasso in the linocut medium are some of the most desirable works done by this great master.
