Description: Contree. Robert Desnos, with one etching by Pablo Picasso. Robert Godet, Paris 1944. Limited edition of 213 numbered copies of which this copy is one of 200 in Lafuma pur fil paper. With one etching in frontispiece, loose as issued, with inverted signature and date Picasso 23.D.43. A collection of 25 poems by Robert Desnos, illustrated with 23 reproductions of different part of the etching to unveiling to the reader, page after page, the different aspects of the frontispiece.
Condition Report: In very good condition. Complete condition report on request as well extra pictures.
Notes: The etching depicts a seated figure in both sides, front and back, with millions of fine lines supporting the figure, the drawing acquires volume and intricacy, and questioning our sense of perception of the whole piece. The poems of the collection are highly militant, alluding to the occupation and imminent liberation; Desnos was arrested by Gestapo on February 1944, before the publication of the book, and died 15 months later.
Artist or Maker: Pablo Picasso - Robert Desnos
