Joan Miro "Femme" original linocut 1938 (rare 1st

Lot 0030 Details

Medium: original linoleum cut. A fine impression on wove paper, executed in 1938 for XXe Siecle (for the very rare Christmas Issue No. 4). Sheet size 12 5/8 x 9 3/4 inches (320 x 248 mm). This work has the distinction of being Miro's first (and only) linocut. Signed in the plate (not by hand).
Condition: there is a small bump to the bottom left corner 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 work. Note: a later edition was also issued by XXe Siecle in 1959, but this is the original, first edition. The definitive way to tell is that the original first edition has the pinholes in the margin (glue was used for later issues of XXe Siecle rather than staples). Also, the later edition has a text inscription printed on back; the original has no text on the back.

Reserve: $1,400.00
