Price on Request
Executed in precisely etched lines, this work exemplifies Picasso’s duel mastery of the print medium and his ability to convey symbolism and narrative. Reflective of Picasso’s earlier style, this piece combines a graceful elegance with a modern Cubist sensibility. While none of the figures have been distorted, Picasso does experiment with highly complex figural positioning, most poignantly evident in the winding shapes of the bodies. Picasso’s contour lines are sharp and crisp, further emphasizing the formal aspect of this work.
Created in 1933, this Etching with Drypoint on Montval laid paper is stamped by the Picasso Estate Collection via Marina Picasso on verso and is a rare proof, aside from the numbered edition of 55.
