Medium: original pochoir. Published in Paris in 1950 by Christian Zervos for the front cover of his deluxe revue Cahiers d'Art. Giacomo Balla contributed this original design especially for this issue. Image size: 6 x 8 inches (153 x 200mm). Signed in the plate (not by hand). As the cover of Cahiers d'Art, there is text both above and beneath the image. Overall in very good condition, with some age-toning and minor wear (mostly outside the image). A beautiful and richly inked impression, rarely found on the market.
Cahiers d'Art was published in Paris from 1926-1960 by Greek art collector, writer and art critic Christian Zervos. From a print collector's viewpoint, this art revue is most famous for the pochoirs which were commissioned for some of the issues. Zervos had high technical standards, and these works are stunning.
