About the Item

This artwork titled " Etoile de Mer Rouge (Red Star Fish)" From the suite "Si je Mourais la Bas" is a rare original color woodcut on L.B hand made paper by renown French artist Georges Braque, 1882-1963. It is hand signed and inscribed H.C (Hors Commerce) in pencil by the artist. The wood block mark is 9.75 x 9.65 inches, sheet size is 18.5 x 14.25 inches, framed is 30.25 x 25.25 inches. Published by Louis Broder, Paris, printed by Fequet and Baudier, Paris. Referenced and pictured in the artist's catalogue raisonne by Dora Vallier, plate #181 page 247. Custom framed in a wooden gold frame, with fabric matting and double gold and color spacer. It is in excellent condition. About the artwork: The timely Si je mourais là-bas [If I was to die over there] was published in 1962, a year before Braque died. The suite of eighteen wood-engravings illustrate selected poems from Guillaume Apollinaire Poèmes à Lou, that Braque chose and edited himself. Apollinaire and Braque were close friends and the poet had publicized the work of Braque and his fellow Cubists in his writings on art, before his death in 1918. Despite their friendship, Braque did not agree with his friend's approach and understanding of painting and their disagreements were a source of playful tension between the two. Braque's mysterious images for this suite illustrate this tension.
