Color pochoir, circa 1920. 267x205 mm; 10 3/4x8 1/4 inches, full margins. Signed and numbered 71/100 in pencil, lower margin. Published by Éditions Galerie Rosenberg, Paris. From Dix Pochoirs. A superb, richly-inked impression of this scarce, early print, with strong colors.

Paul Rosenberg became Picasso's art dealer in 1918 and represented the artist until 1940. In the early 1920s he published a set of 10 pochoirs, including the current work, after a series of cubist gouaches depicting still life and Commedia dell'Arte motifs that Picasso had made in 1920 (see Zervos 82). Picasso (1881-1973) worked closely with the professional pochoir printmakers to replicate the colors and compositions of his early gouaches, then signed each of the pochoirs in pencil.

Provenance: Marina Picasso, the artist's granddaughter, Geneva, with the ink stamp (Lugt 3698, verso).
