Description
 
Medium: original lithograph. This was Fernand Leger's first lithograph and an important contribution to the Cubist art movement. It is listed as entry number 1 in the Lawrence Saphire catalogue raisonne of the Complete Graphic Work of Leger. This impression on a light brown parchment style wove paper was printed in Germany in 1920 for Das Kunstblatt, a German Expressionist art revue that also explored Cubism and other modernist art trends and included this gem of a Cubist print. The image measures 9 1/2 x 7 3/4 inches (242 x 198 mm); the total sheet measures 10 7/8 x 8 1/4 inches (275 x 209 mm). An impression of this same original print can be found in the permanent collection of MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art) in New York. Signed in the stone; not hand-signed.

Condition: there is a crease in the margin near the bottom left corner (not affecting the image). Very scarce.
