Pablo Picasso Tête de Femme (Head of a Woman), 1962 a cubist and iconic linoleum cut by Picasso demonstrates the artist's technical mastery over this relief printmaking medium. A striking and dynamic portrait of Jacqueline, this work is often also referred to as Portrait of Jacqueline au chapeau de paille. An abstracted woman's face is depicted from multiple perspective's in a menagerie of bright colors. She dons a straw hat adding an element of whimsy and character. Identified by Picasso's admirers as Jacqueline Roque, his second and last wife. Picasso fell in love with the raven-haired beauty around the same time that he became enamored with the linocut medium. The two married in 1961, and his affection for her is still present in this stunning portrayal.
