Page of Bulls

Pablo Picasso was fascinated with bulls, bullfighting, the image of the Minotaur and the cult of Mithras. He also famously produced a set of eleven lithographs of bulls; all between December 1945 and January 1946. 

The series is HERE.

Bull ( Plate I. - December 5 1945 )

The series begins with this image.

Bull ( plate XI. - January 17 1946 )

And ends with this one.

Picasso also produced this lithograph called Page of Bulls in December 1945.
