He would never return to Spain.
This is the only complete set of all seven states, including the colored version of the seventh state. After completing the print, in preparation for an edition that would number up to fifty, Picasso had the copper plate "steel-faced," a process in which a thin electroplated coating of steel is applied to the surface of the plate to preserve the quality of printing through an entire edition.
Steel-facing can diminish a print's vibrancy; all Picaso art the impressions of this set, with the sole exception of the colored seventh state, are pre-steel-facing.
Forms consist primarily of outline, with little shading or modeling. Only a few areas are darkly "bitten" the action of the acid bath that burns through the exposed parts of the copper plate, creating the lines that will ultimately be inked: At this stage, the standing girl has dark hair and wears no hat.
The print's central axis is defined by the edge of the background building, which lacks the receding wall that will appear in state IV. Picasso has etched under the ladder at left: The Minotaur's right arm has also been darkened, as have the horse's head and body.
More detail and fine horizontal lines have been added to the standing girl whose face is now particularly dark with hatchingand Picaso art horse and the female matador are Picaso art fully defined and modeled, as are the two women at the window and the interior space behind them.
The more finished head of the horse is closer now to the final version. The bearded man on the ladder and the body of the Minotaur remain lightly shaded contours. The darker tonalities have begun to unify the composition. The standing girl now wears a hat. Her hair is still black, but her face has been lightened.
The beard of the man on the ladder is more fully drawn, suppressing the open-mouthed expression of previous states, and his body is more fully modeled, as are the horse's neck and front legs. The Minotaur's head is much more detailed, and he is now planted more firmly on solid ground.
The sky, clouds, and rain behind him are more defined. The female matador's face is lighter. The wall against which the ladder rests is now clearly delineated with finely etched lines.
The entire plate has been deeply rebitten, and additional work done with scraper and burin. Formerly clear details have become difficult to read. The building's receding wall, at center right, appears for the first time. The ground has been given a solid and uniform shape.
The sky looks more menacing than in the previous state. Three dark lines presumably the result of a printing accident run across the legs of the standing girl and the lower section of the ladder. The horse, matador, and Minotaur are more fully modeled, and the inscription at lower left has been concealed with hatch marks.
The dark-light contrast, or chiaroscuro, that will ultimately characterize the left and right halves of the image has not yet been fully articulated.
The candle flame is more distinct, and the underside of the Minotaur's right arm is illuminated by a stronger light. The dark bands across the standing girl's legs have been reduced, and parts of the Minotaur's head have been lightened.
The shading around the two women in the window has been heightened; they are now submerged in darkness, their former clarity obscured. The standing girl's hair, dress, and hat are now lighter and more legible. The halo around the candle is more pronounced. The Minotaur's head and right arm have been softened, the articulation of the biceps removed, and the underside of the arm made significantly lighter.
The two women and the doves in the window have been clarified; the extreme shading of the previous state has been reduced. The building's receding wall has been lightened, especially below the Minotaur's horn. Lines delineating the sky are more uniform, and the clouds and rain appear less menacing.
The dark bands across the standing girl's legs are now almost entirely gone.
The standing girl's hair has been lightened again, and the reflection on her face has been strengthened.
The bearded man on the ladder has been further clarified, and there is an increased modeling of the Minotaur's head and extended arm. Here, he used red for the Minotaur's cape, the female matador's sash, and individual flowers in the bouquetpinkish tan for the bodies of the Minotaur, the bearded man on the ladder, the standing girl, and the two women spectatorsreddish brown the ground, and the Minotaur's mane and extended armyellow the candle flame, individual flowers, and the dress of the woman spectator on the leftand blue the sky, the sea, and the dress of the standing girl.
