Hand-signed works


Original Hand Drawn Head Of A Faun On a 1948 Lithograph 

(Athenticated by Claude Picasso)

Stunning investment piece.

An original and rare lithograph on which Pablo Picasso has drawn the head of faun and signed the work with a blue pencil.

This original lithograph is from a limited edition of just 300 proofs produced in 1948 on Crêvecoeur du Marais paper. Picasso has however transformed what is already a rare and collectable work in its own right, into one that is both stunning and truly unique.  Using the lithographic illustration as a base he has built onto the image with stylised detail added in blue crayon, in the process altering the simple printed image into one of great warmth and charm. With a final flourish Picasso has then added a striking signature.

The work is similar in topic and style to other work produced by Picasso that year  in particular 'Faune Souriant'

The work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity produced in 2012 by Claude Picasso, the artist's son and executor.

The lithograph measures 40 x 60cm and has been framed to museum standards.
