Mes dessins d'Antibes. Avant-Propos de Georges Salles. Au Pont Des Arts, Paris, 1958.
Portfolio of 16 lithographs, on Arches paper, from an edition of 300 numbered copies plus H.C (or presentation) copies containing an additional pochoir* plate. The portfolio also includes title, text and justification; all sheets, loose as issued, they are guarded in the canvas folder with title and reproduction of the artist's signature in red. The series "Mes dessins d'Antibes" of sixteen lithographs on velin d'Arches pur Chiffon (by Daniel Jacomet) represent the ancient Greece of Antibes, Antypolis. Published in Paris during 1958, this work reproduces the magnificent original Picasso drawings of 1946. Here Picasso utilized possibly for the first time the lithographic technique, reproduced here almost in monochrome to recreate the austere mythological interaction of the Centaur, the Nymph and the Faun, a constant theme in Picasso's post-war period. Size: 65 x 50 cm.
They are excellent as a set and can be framed in any style you choose.
*Pochoir - French for stencil. This is a highly evolved and refined technique for applying water colour, gouache and other mediums through a series of stencils. Jacomet was considered one of the great masters of this technique.
