With a striking background of blue, the black profile outlined in white stands out as one of Braque’s more mysterious works. Conveying a sense of motion, the eye turns downward while the head tilts back making the viewer wonder just what this beauty is seeking.

This ceramic plate by Georges Braque (Argenteuil-sur-Seine, 1882- Paris, 1963), is from the edition of 50.
