Pablo Picasso: Minotaur

Minotaur Caressing a Sleeping Woman 1933

These images document the love affair that was to define an artist's career. Now all 100 of Picasso's Vollard etchings are to be shown in London after being donated to the British Museum.

The prints were created as a visual diary of the artist's life with his young mistress and muse, Marie-Thérèse Walter.

She became the inspiration for some of his most famous work - and caused the downfall of his marriage.
