Towards the end of his life, Picasso returned to the practice of engraving on metal and, from 1963 to 1972, he created a total of 520 works using this method. These works can be split into two groups, the second of which is currently on display at the Picasso Museum. Created between October 1968 and March 1972, the engravings explore the theme of eroticism, showing scenes of a fun, joyful and idle world, yet with an undercurrent of frustrated desire. Picasso makes abundant references to masters of the art world in these works, alluding to Rembrandt, Velázquez, Goya, Ingres, Delacroix, Manet and, in particular, Degas.
