    Original etching printed in black ink on thin white laid paper. Signed with the artist’s estate stamp signature in the margin lower right. A richly printed impression of Geiser/Baer’s only state, with consistent plate tone throughout, from the edition of 50, numbered in pencil in the margin lower left. One of 45 plates from the Caisse a Remourds suite. Published by Galerie Louise Leiris, Paris, 1981; printed by Frelaut, Paris, 1961. Between September 4 and September 15, 1931, Picasso executed a series of about 20 very small paintings, all of which represent women frolicking on the beach. Some are naked, some wear colorful bathing costumes, all of them are playing like children. The paintings are burlesque and “cartoonlike.” Catalogue reference: Bloch 244; Geiser 272.B.b.1

    This work is part of a carefully curated selection by noted fine art expert Jennifer McCloskey, who was formerly affiliated with Doyle Gallery in New York and is now based in San Francisco.
