Title: Pablo Picasso: Pour Roby (L'Age de Soleil, 1950) Etching on Arches Paper.
Delve into the artistic genius of Pablo Picasso with this remarkable etching on Arches paper titled "Pour Roby (L'Age de Soleil, 1950)." Originally created as a portrait for his dear friend, author Robert Godet (Roby), Picasso later etched the portrait onto a printing plate to be included in Roby's book, L'Age de Soleil. In his pursuit of preserving the original drawing, Picasso intentionally replicated it, resulting in a print where both the artist's signature and the title of the piece are reversed.
This etching carries a profound historical significance as Picasso presented the printing plate to Roby, granting him permission to print additional editions. This act not only symbolizes the artist's deep friendship but also showcases Picasso's recognition of the value of multiple reproductions in disseminating his art to a broader audience.
The etching itself is a testament to Picasso's mastery, displaying his distinctive style and profound understanding of form and expression. Through his skilled use of lines and shading, Picasso brings the portrait to life, capturing the essence of Roby with artistic brilliance.
Owning this etching provides a unique connection to Picasso's artistic process and his personal relationship with Roby. It is an opportunity to acquire a piece of art history that showcases both the artist's technical expertise and his generosity in allowing further editions to be printed.
