A vintage etching printed in the 1970s on fine rag paper. Picasso created the plate for this etching in 1956 at his villa at Cannes. The fleshy, sensual nude not only reveals Picasso's famously earthy love of women, but is also a superb formal foil for the economy and simplicity of line in which the figure is defined. "Nu de Dos" was created by Picasso for a portfolio by Jean Cocteau, which he offered in homage to Picasso on his 75th birthday. Displayed with a blue mat and silver frame.
