      Couple et Enfant.

      Etching, engraving and aquatint, circa 1940. 300x222 mm; 12x8 7/8 inches, full margins. Signed and numbered 24/65 in pencil, lower margin. A superb, richly-inked impression of this very scarce print.

      From the 1910s to the 1930s, Jacques Lipchitz's (1891-1973) formal Cubist style gave way to more unconstrained, expressive creations in both sculpture--for which he is best known--and works on paper. Like André Masson, after fleeing Nazi occupied Paris in 1940, Jacques Lipchitz arrived in New York, eventually settling in Hastings-in-Hudson. He began to show at the Buchholz Gallery, later the Curt Valentin Gallery, in New York, which brought him into contact with Atelier 17 and Hayter, who printed several of Lipchitz's etchings.
