Note: In the aftermath of the Second World War Picasso joined the communist party and was active in promoting its activities through his art. The Newspaper “Le Patriot” was a supporter of this ideology and Picasso made a number of lithographs and Linocuts which were published by this organisation amongst which was our work - “La Danse des Faunes”. This was sold to raise funds for the Communist Party. Picasso’s activities in this period are detailed in the excellent work Picasso et la Presse
