Towards the end of his life, in a now famous example of late creative outpouring, Picasso returned to etching as an image-making process after a lapse of some years. And he did so with a vengeance. Between 16 March and 5 October 1968 - a period of a little more than six months - Picasso, then in his late eighties, produced a total of 347 prints. These went on to become known as the famous 347 Gravures, the largest print series of his career. The series revived many motifs from Picasso's entire career including the bullfight, the circus, the theater, the Commedia dell'Arte, themes from Spanish literature (eg. a group of prints based on Fernando de Roja's Le Celestina of 1499), themes from European painting including subjects inspired by El Greco, Goya, Titian, Poussin, Füssli, Degas, Ingres, Rembrandt and others. The series is also technically a tour de force, a collaboration with the printers Piero and Aldo Crommelynck in their workshop in Mougins, breaking many of the established rules of what supposedly could and couldn't be done in etching.
