EIGHT GREAT WORKS

1. PABLO PICASSO
Minotauromachia (1935)
One of just two works from the 20th century that McCullagh included among her selections, this etching by Picasso is the best and most widely known of his many Minotaur studies. This impression is the final proof before the published version.

McCULLAGH SAYS: “This is one of the most ambitious in scale of all his Minotaur studies. By this version, [the composition] looks almost as it will in the final, with great details like the girl’s candle illuminating the scene.”
