Historical Description

Pablo Picasso Jacqueline au Chapeau Noir, 1962 is an exemplary linocut of Picasso’s final muse, Jacqueline Roque. Though she never sat and posed for him, she occupied his mind so intensely that her image always appeared when he began to paint women. In traditional Picasso style, her features are morphed and discombobulated, yet still recognizable as a woman’s face. Using only five colors, he creates the image of her that is indistinguishable; her eyes are shift to the right, one enlarged and placed in the center of her face, the other a large black dot with cream highlights. Using that same cream color, he creates two separate profiles within her face shape, one with a nose in profile to the right, the other in profile to the left with an open mouth and a organize pink shape in between her lips. Using large swathes of black to elucidate the round flat hat placed gingerly atop of her head, her hair in thick bundles that pour out from underneath the hat. Using a high contrasted pink, he places three organic shapes throughout her face, which continuously draws our eye around the work and back to the center of the composition, which allows us to understand the allure of Jacqueline Roque and the influence she had on Picasso.

Created in 1962, this linoleum cut on Arches wove paper is hand-signed by Pablo Picasso (Malaga, 1881 - Mougins, 1973) in pencil in the lower right margin and is numbered from the edition of 50 in the lower left margin. There are also 35 artist proofs.
