Pablo Picasso created over 100 etchings in a collection called the Vollard Suite during the period of 1930-1937. The name Vollard Suite refers to the art dealer, Ambroise Vollard, who commissioned the works. Noteworthy is the minotaur featured amongst the pile of bodies depicted in this image – he used the minotaur motif in a many of the works he produced during this time, and its thought to represent forbidden desires and complicated emotions.
