Note: In Paris in the 1920s Picasso and his wife Olga Koklova were neighbours of the Rosenbergs, who were both art dealers. Rosenberg would become Picasso's most important dealer and had first choice options on his pictures.
This work is based on the painting of the same name (cf. Zervos, vol.IV, illu. p.88).
From the portfolio "Pablo Picasso. Dix Pochoirs". Published by Galerie Rosenberg, Paris, 1920. A Pochoiur is made by a stencilling technique and, consequently, these are not original prints and properly catalogued as “after Pablo Picasso” althoughn they are signed n=and numbered by the artist.
Provenance: The Stamp verso is of considerable interest. On the death of the artist there was considerable discussion as to how his estate should be handled. The Lions share of the money was paid to Marina Picasso, the artists granddaughter. She was the only legitimate line since the other 3 children came from mothers who were not married to Pablo. Much of her inheritance was paid to her in works of art and Marina took advice from Art Professionals by instructing Galerie Jan Krugier to act for her. The exercise started with a massive cataloguing work which took some time due to the quantity of works involved. Over the years, since then, Marina has slowly sold off a lot of the works and used the money to benefit charitable enterprises. It is from this source that our work has obviously emanated.
