Picasso: Tauromaquia

Picasso was commissioned by the publisher Gustavo Gili to illustrate Pepe Hillo’s bullfighting manual Tauromaquia o el arte de torear. In the late 1950s, and after having attended a particularly magisterial bullfight in Arles, Picasso created these 26 etchings—today in the Juan March art collection—in which he depicts the different stages of the bullfight in a rapid, sketchy manner as if recording them directly from life.
