|MATISSE, Henri, 1869-1954|
|INV # 914552|
Lithograph on Simili Japon paper. Signed and annotated "Bon à Tirer" in pencil. A unique Bon à Tirer impression, aside from the signed and numbered edition of 50, 10 artist's proofs, and 8 trial proofs on Chinese paper. Bon á Tirer means "good to pull". This is the first perfect impression of the work and the one that will be used to judge all other impressions in the edition. An intimate, austere portrait, this piece captures a moment of listlessness and contemplation. Provenance: Collection of Henri M. Petiet, with collector's stamp verso. Duthuit 451 Framed dimensions: 25 1/2 x 23 in. Image size: 13 3/4 x 11 in.
