It is not often that a small provincial town can offer for sale a work by Pablo Picasso, the world’s greatest painter of the twentieth century. Grand Auctions has for sale ‘Deux Femmes Nues dans un Arbre’, 1931, an etching by Picasso from an edition of a hundred. One similar impression was sold in Christies, New York in 1988 for $4950 and another sold in Sothebys, Paris recently for over 10,000 euro. The etching displays all of Picasso’s skills as a draughtsman, subtlety and strength.
Sourced in Folkestone
The image has been given to Grand Auctions to sell by a local Folkestone resident. It will be offered for sale at an estimate of £4,000 to £6,000. To view the etching click here. The auction will be held on May 23rd at the Tower Theatre, Folkestone at 6 pm.
