Offered for the collector of Picasso's posters is an example of 1957's "Pates Blanche", created for Cannes' Galerie 57, printed by Devaye Imprimeur. Measuring 22 1/4" by 17 1/4", the poster is technically described as an offset lithograph. The blue areas look like a traditional lithograph process, while the image in gray within the circle has the tiny dots of traditional printing. The poster is scarce, with a total edition of only 500 printed, and that over 50 years ago. Examination out of the frame reveals the condition is respectably good, if hardly perfect, with even age toning of the very thin paper, some very light handling creases, and a few very small foxing marks at lower left and upper right, and a one inch edge tear at left. Photos were taken inside so ignore a few purplish shadows. The narrow wood frame is modern and functional. Found in New Hampshire. .
