Picasso met Cinto Reventós, a medical student, during his early years in Barcelona. Reventós went on to become a famous physician and they remained close friends until the doctor’s death in 1968. Recordant el Doctor Reventós (Barcelona, 1969) was a collection of essays in his memory by various friends. Picasso contributed this intaglio from 1951 as the frontispiece to the volume. The hints of Spanish costume, the sensual allure, and the consonant tactility of the drypoint suggest memories of their youthful experiences in Barcelona and why Picasso should have thought to provide this plate
