Medium: original lithograph. This rare and exquisite lithograph was one of four ink wash drawings executed by Picasso on lithographic transfer paper and printed by Mourlot Freres. This is from the English edition of 64 published in New York by The Noonday Press in 1954 for "Elegy of Ihpetonga and Masks of Ashes" by Yvan Goll. Ihpetonga was the name given by the Canarsie Indians to the part of Brooklyn now known as Columbia Heights. Beautifully printed on Arches wove paper with deckle edges, the sheet measures 13 x 9 7/8 inches (330 x 251 mm). The lithograph was issued by the publisher tipped (mounted at the top corners) onto a support sheet of black paper. Not signed.
