La Tauromaquia is a series of 26 aquatint etchings illustrating one of the most important themes of the Spanish culture, the art of the bullfight. Picasso created this body of work in 1957 as an homage to the 17th century book written by the famous matador, Jose Delgado.

The technique itself is a wonderful invention that produces subtle tones and varied texture. Picasso would first paint on the clean plate with a mixture of sugar and ink. The plate was varnished and immersed in water whereupon the sugar dissolved and lifted off the varnish. The plate was then grained and bitten (with acid) in those areas where the varnish had been stripped away. When the plate was inked and printed, the areas that were painted in sugar printed a rich black tone. Picasso used variations of ink and water to achieve different effects.

 

 

 

Picasso’s fascination with the bullfight started when he was a young boy in Malaga. His childhood notebooks from school are filled with sketches of matadors, bullrings, and picadors. It is a little known fact that the very first oil ever created by the young master was of a matador (1889-1890). The art of the bullfight remained an important theme for the artist and was one that Picasso continued to explore throughout his creative years.

Picasso used the "lift ground aquatint" technique to create his portfolio. Roger Lacouriere taught Picasso this difficult and obscure etching process. Picasso first used this process in the Vollard suite in 1933, then in the 1936 to illustrate Natural History by Buffon.
