HENRI LAURENS – Untitled (Standing figure), 1951
Sheet size: 310x240 mm
Edition: Size of edition unknown; scarce – Signed in plate
Original lithograph by Henri Laurens, initialled in the stone, printed by Edmond and Jacques Desjobert on cream wove paper. This lithograph was contributed to the rare first issue of the re-launched Nouvelle Serie of the art revue XXe Siècle, edited by G. di San Lazzaro, which appeared in 1951. Later issues of XXe Siècle had a print run said to be about 2000 copies, but the early issues must have been much more modest, as they are extremely scarce. There were also 25 signed and numbered copies of this lithograph. The paper is mildly creased by handling - this is hardly visible in reality, and much exaggerated in our photograph Condition: Very good.
