David et Bethsabee (after Lucas Cranach)
Original lithograph

An original Pablo Picasso lithograph printed in black ink on wove paper bearing the Arches block letter watermark.

A superb impression of Mourlot, Reusse and the Picasso Project’s definitive state of this subject, printed after the composition was transferred to a lithographic stone from the zinc plate on which it was originally drawn on March 30, 1948.  From the edition of 50, numbered in pencil in the margin lower right (there were 6 additional impressions reserved for the artist and the printer).

Hand-signed in multi-colored pencil in the margin lower right Picasso, dated on the stone “7.4.49” (in reverse) and “25.5.49” lower left.

Bloch 442; Mourlot 109 (a)


In excellent condition, printed on a sheet with full margins and deckled edges.
