Gino Severini original linocut, 1939
Medium: original linoleum cut. This linocut by Italian Futurist Gino Severini is a much sought-after piece from the rare XXe Siecle (issue No. 5-6). Published in Paris by San Lazzaro in 1939. Sheet size 12 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches (320 x 245 mm). Signed in the plate (not by hand).
Condition note: there are six pinholes along the left edge of the sheet -- this is from the publisher's original binding staples, and also serves to demonstrate the provenance of this piece.
