|PICASSO, Pablo, 1881-1973|
|Jacqueline de profil (Buste de femme au corsage blanc), 1958|
|INV # 914939|
Lithograph on Arches wove paper. Dated in the plate. An extremely rare proof of the third state, originally reserved for the artist. In December 1957, Picasso composed the first state of "Buste de femme au corsage blanc" (Bust of a woman in a white bodice) on a zinc plate, resulting in 50 signed and numbered copies (bloch 848). In March 1958, the artist reworked the same zinc plate but did not successfully print this version. In December 1958, he revisited the same zinc plate again, reworking it, and renaming it "Jacqueline de profil," of which ours is an exceptional example. Only a few proofs of these efforts exist, as they were originally reserved for the artist. Published by Galerie Louise Leiris, Paris. Bloch 848; Mourlot 311 Image size: 30 1/16 x 22 1/8 in.
