This beautiful color Pochoir depicts Jacqueline Roque born in Paris on 24 February 1927. She is best known as the muse and second wife of Pablo Picasso. Their marriage lasted 11 years until his death, during which time he created over 400 portraits of her, more than any of Picasso's other loves. When creating in Pochoir, a printing process using stencils made from very thin sheets of zinc, Picasso collaborated with master printer and inventor Daniel Jacomet. Picasso admired the results that could be achieved with Jacomet’s hybrid invention where he fused the printed collotype process, which uses gelatin added to the dichromate to create the image plate from which the paper is printed.
