Picasso met Jacqueline at Perpignan during the summer of 1953.  In the autumn of the following year, Picasso and Jacqueline began to live together.  Just as with Marie-Thérèse Walter, the other great love in Picasso’s life, so Jacqueline quickly became present in all the artist’s work.  Like Marie-Thérèse, Jacqueline, little by little, began to haunt the artist’s hand whether he drew, painted, cut sheet metal, modeled clay or decorated pottery.  And she became ever present in his prints.
