Picasso's Minotaur, the half-man half-bull of Greek mythology, is a raw being and master of his confining, dark labyrinth.  Once lured into the light of the civilized world, he becomes disoriented and is slain.

Within the Vollard Suite, Picasso explored the Minotaur theme in eleven etchings, all created in thirty-two days in the spring of 1933.
