Between about 1958 and 1968, when Picasso was living in the south of France far from the facilities where he had made lithographs or etchings, he explored the medium of linocut, eventually creating more than 150 prints in this relief medium. The bacchanal theme recurs throughout Picasso's oeuvre, and in this linocut and several other examples the seventy-eight-year-old artist captured once again the movement and joy of dance, music, and unabashed sensuality.
