Etching from Alternance. Marie Laurencin.
(Laurencin, Marie)

Etching from Alternance.

Laurencin, Marie (illus.)

(N.p. Le Gerbier, 1946). One of 340 copies. Color etching measuring 7 3/4 by 6 1/2 inches by Marie Laurencin, a contemporary of Picasso and Braque, depicting an angel with a small guitar in her lap. Although Laurencin was one of a few women artists of the time to experiment with Cubist ideas, her focus on female subjects is often viewed as a response to Cubism's masculine modernism. This etching is from the book Alternance, a collection of works by leading writers and artists after World War II that includes Jean Cocteau, Paul Eluard, and Henri Matisse. Matted and framed in an antique-style carved wooden frame by Heydenryk in New York. The whole measures 14 by 13 inches. Item #23644

Price: $1,250.00
