Homme dévoilant une Femme. (Man uncovering a woman). 1931. Drypoint. Bloch 138; Baer 203 B.d. Vollard Suite, plate 5. Printed by: Lacourier, Paris. Published by Vollard. From the edition of 250 on petit papier vergé Montval paper. Total Edition 310. Good condition apart from mat burn and 3 unobtrusive foxing spots in the lower left-hand margin. A rich impression with drypoint burr, printed on laid paper countermarked 'Vollard', on the full sheet with deckle edges on three sides. Annotated with the Baer number '203' in the lower left-hand margin. Signed 'Picasso' in pencil by the artist. Housed in a striking 28 1/2 x 23 1/2-inch modernist stepped gold leaf frame. The image shows the artist uncovering his lover, Marie-Thérèse Walter, the mother of his daughter, Maya. The Vollard Suite reflects Picasso's interest in the themes of Rembrandt and the artist at work, wild depictions of the mythical Minotaur, and, perhaps most famously, Picasso’s relationship with his muse and mistress, Marie-Thérèse Walter. Pablo Picasso is one of the most important 20th-century artists. His is art career spanned over 7 decades. Pablo Picasso is most known for his introduction of Cubism, and modern approach to painting. Not only was his art form well ahead of his time, but the works he created went on to influence numerous artists.

About the Artist

Pablo Picasso

One of the most prolific and revolutionary artists the world has ever seen, Pablo Picasso had a tremendous impact on the development of 20th-century modern art. Although he is best known for his association with the Cubist movement, which he founded with Georges Braque, Picasso’s influence extends to Surrealism, neoclassicism and Expressionism.

“Every act of creation is, first of all, an act of destruction,” the Spanish artist proclaimed. In Picasso's Cubist paintings, he emphasizes the two-dimensionality of the canvas, breaking with conventions regarding perspective, foreshortening and proportion. Picasso was inspired by Iberian and African tribal art. One of his most famous pre-Cubist works is Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907), a painting considered immoral and shocking at the time for its depiction of nude women whose faces resemble Iberian tribal masks.

Picasso made many portraits in this style, most often of the women in his life, their expressively colored faces composed of geometric shards of surface planes. In Woman in a Hat (Olga), 1935, he painted his first wife as an assemblage of abstract forms, leaving the viewer to decipher the subject through the contrasting colors and shapes. Picasso was a tireless artist, creating more than 20,000 paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics and sculptures. Tracing his life’s work reveals the progression of modern art, on which he had an unparalleled influence.
