This lot consists of a hand-painted mixed media (gouache and ink) on paper, signed "Picasso" at top right. Image portrays a female figure in muted tones of grey and brown. Within this somewhat composed palette, an interesting juxtaposition has been masterfully executed: statuesque shoulders, an elegantly curving neck, and long, flowing hair is met abruptly by an almost-industrial face and trap-like mouth. This piece has been rendered on antique sheet music. Done in the Cubist style of Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881-1973). Measures approximately 7" x 10.5".
Overall: 10.5"H x 7"W
