About

PABLO PICASSO 1881-1973 Málaga 1881-1973 Mougins (Spanish) Title: Four Nude Women and a Sculpted Head (Vollard Suite pl. 82), 1934 Technique: Original Hand Signed Etching and Drypoint on Montval paper Paper Size: 45.1 x 34.5 cm / 17.5 x 13.6 in Plate Size: 31.6 x 22.4 cm / 12.4 x 8.8 Additional Information: This original etching is hand signed in pencil by the artist "Picasso" in the lower right margin. This etching is from Picasso's most important series of etchings known as the Suite Vollard. It was realised by Picasso on the 10th of March, 1934. It was printed in a limited edition of 260 impressions in 1934 and published by A. Vollard, Paris. The paper bears the Vollard watermark. Note: The Suite Vollard, created between 1930-37, was named after it publisher, the French art dealer and critic Ambroise Vollard. Picasso and Vollard shared a close working relationship up until 1910; however, after this date Vollard was no longer Picasso’s dealer though the two continued to collaborate on publishing projects. In 1930, Vollard, encouraged by the success of two earlier ventures, ambitiously commissioned 100 plates from Picasso and by 1937 the plates were completed and given to master printer Roger Lacouriere to print. The entire edition comprises 3 copies on parchment, 50 copies on larger format Montval paper (50 x 38 cm) and 250 on smaller format Montval paper 44.5 x 34.0). Tragically, Ambroise Vollard died in a car crash 22 July 1939 leaving the project temporarily suspended, until a greater part of the edition was purchased by the print dealer Henri Petiet. After World War II Petiet engaged Picasso to sign a certain number of sets, and this continued up until 1969 but ceased with the publication of the 347 Series. Hence, a number of the prints from the edition of 250 remain unsigned.

Reference: Bloch 219; Baer 404 Condition: Very good condition.
