Considered the preeminent printmaker of the twentieth century, Picasso made about 2,500 prints during his career. It was not until 1939, however, that he began experimenting with linocut. In this portrait, a simplified image of his wife Jacqueline, Picasso marked the pliant surface of a linoleum block with a series of scratchy lines and printed it solely in black, creating a rich chiaroscuro.
