Louis Marcoussis original burin etching and engraving "Rimbaud" Louis Marcoussis original burin etching and engraving "Rimbaud"

Medium: original burin etching and engraving. This impression on wove paper was published in Paris by San Lazzaro in 1939 for XXe Siecle (issue No. 5-6). Note: the flies are a Louis Marcoussis trademark. XXe Siecle (Chroniques du Jour) was a deluxe art revue that was the source of many outstanding prints. It was published by Gualtieri di San Lazzaro from 1938-1939, and again from 1951 until 1978 (known as the Nouvelle Serie). Many important artists contributed original prints, including Miro, Picasso, Chagall, Braque, Villon, Matta, Indiana, Rosenquist, Lam, Dali, Zao Wou-ki, Matisse, Delaunay, Ernst, Poliakoff, Soulages, Leger, Moore, Kandinsky, Agam, Arp, Calder, Magnelli, Baj, Marini and Vasarely.

Sheet size 12 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches (320 x 245 mm). Signed in the plate (not by hand).

Condition note: there is some foxing. Also, 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.
