About

Marie Laurencin was an important figure in the Parisien avant-garde and a member of the Cubists associated with the Section d’Or, Pablo Picasso, Jean Metzinger, Albert Gleizes, Robert Delaunay, Henri le Fauconnier and Francis Picabia. She is often identified as the muse of the poet Guillaume Apollinaire. Laurencin had important connections to the Salon of the American expatriate and famed lesbian writer Natalie Clifford Barney. In 1922 La Nouvelle Revue Francaise published L’Eventail, a book of poems written for Marie Laurencin. The poets included Roger Allard, André Breton, Francis Carco, Chevrier, Codet, Fleuret, Gabory, Max Jacob, Valéry larbaud, Jean Pellerin et A. Salmon. These etchings accompanied the text and are all self portraits of Marie Laurencin. L’Eventail of course means ‘The Fan’ in French and the motif is repeated throughout. The original edition was of 335 and sadly these do not have the accompanying text but are none the less in very good original condition and would have been printed in the same period. These are extremely attractive and charming examples of Marie Laurencin’s work. They are intimate little scenes that draw you into Laurencin’s playful imagination and her lifetime pursuit to find a specific feminine aesthetic. Although she is associated with the Cubists these are very much more intricate and show her fascination of curvilinear forms and textures. Though unsigned (as the vast majority are) these are rare and in very good condition with good deep platemarks
