This information may change due to ongoing research. Glossary of Terms

This 1959 interpretation of the bacchanalian theme is one of several linocuts Pablo Picasso executed during a period of great contentment with his new wife, Jacqueline Roque (French, 1927–1986). He associated the motif with the Arcadian landscape and the Mediterranean, where he was then living.
