The Haggin Museum is pleased to present Picasso’s La Tauromaquia from the Bank of America Collection. This collection of aquatint etchings features the allure of bullfighting in Spain.
Born in Málaga, Spain, Pablo Picasso was one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. He was a painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist and stage designer. For nearly eighty of his 91 years, Picasso devoted himself to an artistic production that contributed significantly to the entire development of modern art.
La Tauromaquia is a series of 26 aquatint etchings illustrating what was once one of the most important themes of Spanish culture, the art of the bullfight.
