Galerie Pierre, Stockholm.
Etching and dry needle, created by Pablo Picasso on January 30, 1934 in Paris.
The date of the etching's creation can be read out in a mirrored inscription. In the lower right corner of the work, the dating is clearly seen.
In the right part of the picture is a bearded gentleman with fig leaves in a flower wreath on his head: It is the god Bacchus in Pablo Picasso's version.
With both hands he holds tightly to a wine carafe with classic Greek decoration, so-called geometric pattern. Morphologically, the wine carafe can also symbolize something completely different in this work of art.
In the left, a beautiful woman is seen in profile, with a kylix (ancient Greek beverage cup) in her right hand.
Her left hand rests on the table. Her gesture with the beverage cup gives the feeling that she wants more wine from the god Bacchus.
Exact versions of this etching are included in several museum collections, including the Gracefield Arts Center in Scotland, the Gottfried Keller-Stiftung Kunstmuseum in Switzerland and the Vivanco Fundación Museum in Spain.
