MATISSE, Henri, 1869-1954
Lassitude, 1925
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.
Collection of Henri M. Petiet, 
with collector's stamp verso.
Duthuit 451
Framed dimensions: 25 1/2 x 23 in.
