Historical Description

Pablo Picasso Nature Morte (Still Life), 1927 offers a wonderfully bohemian still life that celebrates the arts. The red cloth overlaying the table features a distinctly French provincial pattern and adds a sense of delicacy to the composition. Evoking the idyllic life of southern France, the open shutters of a brilliant blue sky fill the background and frame the bust sculpture on the far end of the table. Central to this work are a few pages of sheet music with a mandolin nearby, both abstracted and artistically distorted in Picasso’s iconic style.

This color etching & aquatint is hand signed by Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973) in pencil and numbered from the edition of 200 in pencil in the lower left margin. From the total edition of 200 proofs in color (aside from 9 proofs in black), published by Bernheim-Jeune éditeurs, Paris. After a masterful oil painting.
