Background In 1966 the Picasso Museum at the Palacio Aguilar was new, having been established in the Catalan capital in 1963 contrary to the wishes of the Madrid government of Francisco Franco. Most of the works exhibited were from the collection of the artist's lifelong friend Jaume Sabartés. The subject here is Benedetta Bianco, an Italian model who had married Picasso's friend Ricard Canals.
