Henri Matisse "Teeny" original linocut 1938 1st edition
Henri Matisse "Teeny" original linocut (1938 1st edition


Item Code: 344

Medium: original linoleum cut. A fine impression on wove paper, executed in 1938 for the very rare XXe Siecle (issue No. 4). A later edition was also issued by XXe Siecle in 1959, but this is the original, first edition Matisse linocut. Sheet size: 12 5/8 x 9 3/4 inches (320 x 248 mm). Signed in the plate (not by hand).

Condition: there is a small bump to the bottom left corner of the sheet. 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 work.
