Henri Matisse lithograph for Verve "Icarus"
Henri Matisse lithograph for Verve, 1945


Item Code: 2699

Medium: lithograph (after the d├ęcoupage). Matisse executed this composition in 1945 especially for the front cover of Verve (Volume IV, No. 13) -- the rare "De la Couleur" issue. Size: 13 1/2 x 10 1/8 inches (358 x 258 mm). Not signed.

Condition: this was the actual cover -- there is some wear and the edges of the sheet have been trimmed on all sides. There is another lithograph printed on back with some offsetting from this showing through to the front.
