Georges Braque "Oiseau" original lithograph, 1975


Item Code: 2523

Medium: original lithograph. This is the second printing (deuxieme tirage) of this striking Georges Braque composition, for the portfolio "San Lazzaro et ses amis", published in Paris. A number of important artists collaborated together on this project, in homage to Gualtieri di San Lazzaro, founder of the deluxe art revuel XXe Siecle (Chroniques du Jour), and an instrumental figure in the Paris art world, as a publisher, critic and friend to many of the 20th Century's great printmakers. Among the artists represented are Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Zao Wou-ki, Joan Miro, Marc Chagall, Graham Sutherland, Rene Magritte, Hans Hartung, Lucio Fontana, Alberto Magnelli, Henry Moore, Serge Poliakoff and Max Bill.

This is a fine impression on quality Arches wove paper with deckle edges, printed in Paris in 1975 by Mourlot Freres, in a limited edition of 575. The total sheet measures 14 x 10 1/4 inches (355 x 260mm). Not signed. The first printing was published by XXe Siecle in 1958; interestingly, this second impression is more scarce and printed on a finer quality of paper.
