Henri LAURENS - Original Print - Wood - Untitled (A poem in each Paul Eluard book) 2

Artist: Henri LAURENS (1885-1954)
Title: Untitled, 1955
Technique and support: Wood on paper
Type of work : Original print monogrammed "HL" by hand by the artist in pencil at the bottom left, monogrammed "HL" in the plate and numbered III/IV. This work is an additional wide-margined edition of illustration 14 of the tribute book to Eluard "a poem in each book" published in 1956 in 120 copies. In the book illustration 14 is positioned next to Paul Eluard's poem "Les mains libre" (1937). The work comes from the album called "Album A", Reprinted from the book in 20 copies. Each album contains, like the book, 16 prints (including this work by Henri Laurens) but they were printed with wide margins and unlike the prints in the book, all signed or monogrammed by the artists. The album we have was the property of the publisher Louis BRODER. It stands out from the others because it is enriched in addition to the 16 large-margined illustrations with many other prints collected by the publisher throughout his collaboration with the artists on this book.
Dimensions: 32 x 46.5 cm (image 17 x 30.5 cm)
Condition: Good
Provenance: Genevieve and Jean Paul Kahn collection

Biography of the artist : Henri Laurens, born February 18, 1885 in Paris, is a French cubist sculptor, painter, draftsman and engraver. In 1899, he studied drawing and the influence of Auguste Rodin is noticeable in his works. It was in 1911, attracted by the group of artists in Montparnasse, that he began to sculpt in the cubist style. His work influences big names such as Pablo Picasso, but also Georges Braque. From 1917, he produced etchings, drypoints, but also woodcuts, as well as lithographs, from 1950.
