404530--PICASSO--Marie-Thérèse Dreaming of Metamorphosis, 1933

"The Minotaur, the half-man, half-bull of classical legend, makes its first appearance in the 'Vollard Suite' in May 1933. In direct contrast to the cerebral, Apollonian detachment of the 'Sculptor's Studio', the mythical creature represents the forces of uncontrolled emotion, of irrational impulses and unbridled, Dionysian behavior. For Picasso, the Minotaur became part of his personal mythology." Coppel, Stephen. Picasso Prints: The Vollard Suite. London: British Museum, 2012. page 153.
