Between the years of 1946 and 1956, Pablo Picasso pulled concepts from his earlier creations, a series of drawings and watercolor, in order to form Bacchanale (1956). From his earliest drawings to his last paintings, sex in all its misery, pain, absurdity and desire is a constant influence. Picasso’s erotica in Bacchanale reveals the extent of that influence. From the time he was 8 years old to a few months before he died, Picasso erotique shows that much of Picasso’s creativity had its wellspring in sexuality.  Ranging from tender to racy, many scenes included the subjects from brothels which Picasso recorded in his youth to the voyeuristic sketches of his old age. In between, his wives, mistresses and muses make appearances in the eye-bending contortions of his Cubist and Surrealist periods. 

Pablo Picasso chose pochoir as a technique over two-hundred times, both at the beginning and the end of his career. A refined stencil-based technique, pochoir is characterized by its crisp lines and brilliant colors, producing images that have a wet appearance. Pochoir begins with the analysis of the composition, including color tones and densities, of a color image. Numerous stencils were designed and made of aluminum, copper, or zinc.. The initial layers would be created with watercolor washes and the final marks applied with soft, opaque gouache. Pochoir was most popular from the late nineteenth century through the 1930s, its center of activity in Paris.
