London Auctions. Pablo Picasso at Dreweatts & Bloomsbury on the 11th December 2013. Yareah loves Picasso, if you have the chance visit Bloomsbury House, Maddox Street.
It is highly unusual to see hand coloured etchings by Picasso. In general they were produced for only his closest friends and collaborators. The present work created by the artist in 1934, is a extensively hand-worked presentation copy, given to the printer Roger Lacourier in thanks for the work he had done producing ‘The Vollard Suite’, Picasso’s masterpiece set of etchings. Never before seen on the market, the present lot presents a unique opportunity to acquire an early, hand-coloured etching by one of the most important artists of the 20th Century. It is estimated at £30,000 – 50,000. [Lot 89].
The sale is on view at Bloomsbury House, Maddox Street, from Saturday to Wednesday, 7 – 10 December. The catalogue will be available online in the week commencing 18th November and online bidding with no additional premium will be available via www.bloomsburyauctions.com.
