From Fondation Beyeler, Switzerland:
Picasso got to know Jacqueline Roque (1927–1986) in 1953. She was to be the artist’s last partner, marrying him in 1961. In 1970, Picasso dedicated this optimistic linocut portrait of Jacqueline in profile, which he overpainted with several sets of lines, to Hildy Beyeler, whose role in building the Beyeler Collection should certainly not be underestimated.
