Note: "This expressive linocut celebrates the beauty of the human form through which Picasso has created one of his most intriguing prints. Created using one block printed in black, the lines carved out of the linoleum has been printed in white, producing an effective aura of subtle grace and balanced composition. With traces of his cubist sentiment, Picasso has invited us into this intimate scene of painter and model; they interact with each other in a distracted way as each are occupied with their own action, despite being in such close proximity to one another. Yet a closeness and understanding between the two are conveyed as Picasso has effortlessly translated in the expression on their faces
