Sex as a driving life force is powerfully communicated in the thousands of erotic works created by Pablo Picasso (1881 -1973), and this one translates as 'The Taste of Happiness'. This screen print is from a 1998 catalogue raisonné, 25 x 33 cm.
I will cover you with love when next I see you, with caresses, with ecstasy. I want to gorge you with all the joys of the flesh, so that you faint and die.
Gustave Flaubert to Louise Colet, 1846
