Pablo Picasso's portrayal of a woman in an armchair is a classic example of his avant-garde Cubist style. Rendered as a series of angular shapes and thick lines, the figure of the woman appears fragmented and reduced to mere shapes, forming new perspectives and views that do not exist naturally.
A lithograph from the Marina Picasso Estate Collection after the Pablo Picasso painting "Femme Assise". The original painting was completed in 1953. In the 1970's after Picasso's death, Marina Picasso, his granddaughter, authorized the creation of this lithograph by Laurent Marcel Salinas, who worked closely with Picasso during his lifetime. The limited edition print run was completed and published by Marina Picasso in conjunction with Jackie Fine Arts in 1982. The lithograph is printed on French Arches paper, ink-stamped by the Estate verso, and hand-signed and numbered by Marina Picasso on the recto. The embossed seal of the Estate is lower right and the printer's chop, lower left. The work is presented in a beautiful museum frame using all acid-free conservation materials.
