Note: This rescue scene is an allusion to a real story in which Marie-Therese nearly drowned before Picasso’s eyes - an experience which left him deeply shaken. The artist may have imagined that his young lover was the innocent victim of his vengeful wife, Olga, who did threaten to murder her rival, Marie-Therese. The series of works of which this is one owe much to the Surrealist movement with which the artist was involved between 1925 and 1937. Picasso had taken part in the Surrealists first exhibition and gave his permission for many of his works to be reproduced in Surrealist publications. Much to the disgust of the Surrealist leader, Andre Breton, Picasso was never a devoted follower of the movement and ultimately turned away from it. Our etching is not directed towards the “Sauvetage” series but is obviously of the same genre and shows women frolicking on the beach with one of them, looking like a pair of scissors, with legs akimbo, diving.
