Lot Essay

This fine impression is printed on vellum and is from an edition of only three on this material. Picasso was fond of using different types of paper – in particular for deluxe editions - and here the warm tone and smooth surface results in a very different effect from the edition printed on paper. As vellum is not an absorbent material, the lines of ink sit proud on the surface, resulting in an impression of great visual depth and strength.
