Jacques Villon (French, 1875-1963), Chapeau 1830 or Le Chapeau de Grand-Mère, 1907. Ginestet Pouillon 173 i/II. Edition of 20 printed in black. Signed and dated in the plate lower right: "Jacques Villon / 07". Inscribed in pencil lower left margin: "tire a 20"; signed in pencil lower right margin: "Jacques Villon". Printed on Arches paper with deckled edges. A very fine, rich impression in fine condition. Plate measures 19 1/4 x 13 3/4 inches. Sheet measures 24 x 17 1/4 inches. A master draughtsman and printmaker, French artist Jacques Villon (1875-1963) is credited with creating a purely graphic language for Cubism. Born Gaston Duchamp in Normandy, Villon was the elder brother of major artists Raymond Duchamp-Villon (French, 1876-1918) and Marcel Duchamp (French, 1887-1968). He adopted the pseudonym of Jacques Villon in the mid-1890s as a tribute to Alphonse Daudet’s novel Jack (1876) and the 15th century French poet François Villon. His long career bridged the artistic evolution in Paris from Impressionism to Cubism, and one can follow all the phases of this transition in his graphic art. While Villon’s earliest works exude the fashionable elegance of the Belle Époque, his later etchings and drypoints are masterpieces of Cubist structure.
