Nude, Model, Sculpture, Head


Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), Sculpteurs, Model et Sculpture, etching, signed in pencil, 1933, from the Suite Vollard (Bloch 149, Baer 300), total edition of 310. In excellent condition, archival matting. With wide margins, 7 1/2 x 10 3/8, the sheet 13 3/8 x 17 5/8 inches.

A fine, delicately printed, clear impression, on laid paper with the Vollard watermark.

About half of the 100 prints in the Vollard Suite series – 46- are focused on the artist and his studio.  Perhaps the most fascinating are those in which Picasso uses a spare, neo-classical idiom to portray models and the artist, together with the modernist sculpture that the artist has created – as in this etching.
