Pablo Picasso lithograph poster Traits, Tete de femme Pablo Picasso lithograph poster and collage | Traits, Tete de femme

Medium: lithograph, collage and stencil poster. Extremely rare, with no others currently on the market. This work consists of a lithograph mounted onto brown wove paper, with a collage of hand-cut newsprint letters and stenciled text in red and blue ink. On verso is a stamp stating that this affiche (poster) was issued in a limited edition of 60 and that this is copy number 1 (see photos).

The lithograph itself appears to be a slightly different state of "Tête de femme". It is known that Tete de femme (references Bloch 384; Mourlot 4) was executed by Picasso in 1945 and issued in an edition of 50 with Picasso's red pencil signature but with no plate signature. The lithograph offered here is printed on Arches laid paper and is signed in the stone, but is not hand-signed.

The size of the lithograph portrait is 11 3/4 x 8 1/4 inches (300 x 210 mm) and the full poster measures 19 3/4 x 13 inches (500 x 325 mm). The first photo shows the complete poster, photographed against a white background. The second photo is a close-up of the lithograph and the third shows the publisher's stamp on the back side.

Condition: there are pinholes at each corner of the poster, with minor creasing throughout. The lithograph shows a horizontal crease near the top, where it is attached to the support sheet. This rarity is quite an unusual find.

Max Beckmann Bildnis Frau H.M. Naila woodcut Max Beckmann Bildnis Frau H.M. Naila signed original woodcut

Medium: original woodcut. Signed in pencil. Catalogue reference: Hofmaier 282 IV BB. Printed in Germany in 1923 for the very rare Kunst der Gegenwart portfolio, published in Munich by Marées-Gesellschaft, R. Piper & Co., with the Marées-Gesellschaft blindstamp in the margin. The printer was Fritz Voigt, of Berlin. This impression is one of 220 printed on cream wove paper from a total edition of 300 (consisting of 220 on wove and 80 on japon paper). The image measures 13 3/4 x 13 inches (350 x 331 mm); the total sheet measures 20 1/2 x 18 1/2 inches (520 x 472 mm) with full original margins and deckle edges.

In very good condition; with minor creasing near the edges of the sheet and a tiny pinhole in the space above the figure's right eye (hardly visible).

This is one of several portraits of a mysterious woman called "Naila" that were done by Max Beckmann. It is now known that Naila was Dr. Hildegard Melms, and that Beckmann had an affair with her in 1923, the same year he executed this print. This important German Expressionist woodcut can be found in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Brooklyn Museum and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

Marcel Duchamp Obligation Monte Carlo original lithograph bond Marcel Duchamp "Obligation Monte Carlo" original lithograph | Monte Carlo Bond

Medium: original lithograph. Also called "Monte Carlo Bond". A fine impression on wove paper, printed in 1938 for XXe Siecle (the very rare Christmas Issue No. 4) in an edition of approximately 1200 and published in Paris by San Lazzaro. Sheet size 12 5/8 x 9 1/8 inches (320 x 230 mm). Signed in the plate (not by hand).

The fine print in the background reads, "moustiques domestiques demistock"; literally, half-priced mosquitos, reflecting Duchamp's whimsical sense of humor and his love of word-play. In the center is the famous portrait of Duchamp taken by his friend Man Ray. There has been much debate over this: is the artist wearing shaving cream or soap? And the "horns" on his head have been given various interpretations. On back of the sheet is printed the rules and instructions for actually redeeming the bond.

This work has acquired a certain cult status among twentieth century prints. However, it was first created not so much for the sake of art but rather as a get-rich-quick scheme whereby Marcel Duchamp could raise money by issuing bonds, and then "break the bank" at the roulette wheels of Monte Carlo. The first appearance of this piece was the actual edition of bonds, printed in 1924. Very few of the original 1924 bonds were printed and almost none have survived; one can be found in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art, donated to the museum by the artist; another was auctioned by Christie's in 2010 for over one million dollars. The version we offer here was executed by Duchamp as a lithographic recreation of bond number 12, and was issued in 1938 for the XXe Siecle edition, and has since become very scarce and highly sought after.

Condition: there is minor age-toning, and small bumps at two corners 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 piece.

Rembrandt van Rijn etching Jacob and Laban Rembrandt van Rijn original etching "Jacob and Laban"

Medium: original etching. Catalogue reference: Bartsch 118 ii/ii. Jacob and Laban is also known as Three Oriental Figures. Executed in 1641, this impression on watermarked laid paper is from the 1868 Hamerton edition. Plate size: 5 3/4 x 4 1/2 inches (144 x 114 mm). Sheet size: 9 7/8 x 6 5/8 inches (250 x 170 mm). Signed and dated in the plate.

Condition: previously framed. There is some discoloration to the paper, creasing in the margin and a small tear in the margin near the right edge of the sheet (not affecting the etching itself). On the back are penciled annotations from a previous owner and the remains of old tape mounts.

This etching was removed from the rare first volume of P. G. Hamerton's "Etching and Etchers", printed in London in 1868 (later volumes were published but only the 1868 volume contained the Rembrandt etching, in addition to original etchings by other European artists. Philip Gilbert Hamerton (1834-1894) was a British artist, scholar and art critic, and he wanted to provide collectors with an original Rembrandt etching.

By the mid-nineteenth century, most of the original Rembrandt copper etching plates still in existence were in poor condition because only a limited number of impressions can be pulled from a copper plate before it becomes worn down from overprinting. Hamerton was a perfectionist, and he searched for an original Rembrandt etching copper plate that could be printed from with quality results. Thus we have the 1868 edition of Jacob and Laban, printed from Rembrandt's original plate.
