Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)
Sculpteur et sculpture, 1966
A fantastic original large-size etching (Aquatint) by the Master. Very scarce!

+ Size of the sheet: 48 x 76 cm / 18,8 x 29,9 in.
+ Size of the side of the sheet with the aquatint: 48 x 38 cm / 18,8 x 14,9 in.
Condition: In excellent condition. May have some occasional soft handling creases or some minor stains at the edges. Image very clean otherwise, well-inked. Folded as published & printed with Pierre Reverdy’s poem as issued.
Issued from the portfolio “Sable mouvant”, illustrated with 10 aquatints by Pablo Picasso (please note that we only sell this plate and NOT the complete Art book). “Sable mouvant” is Pierre Reverdy’s last poem, considered by the author himself as his poetic legacy. It was published posthumously through the eponym in-folio, in an homage from Pablo Picasso to his late friend. The Art book was published by Louis Broder in 1966, Paris.
The aquatints were engraved by the hand of Pablo Picasso himself, and printed by Crommelynck Workshop. All the engraving plates were scratched after printing, making impossible any modern re-edition. The text was composed by hand and printed by Fequet & Baudier.
