Picasso poster for an exhibition held in early 1956 at the Galerie Lucie Weill in Paris. The measurements are 24 1/2" by 16 3/4". There is a narrow inexpensive black frame, and no glass. On the reverse of the framing materials is written in pencil, "Picasso/Papiers colles dessin M.F./photolitho 67 x 46 cm./1000 copies". A definitive book on Picasso's posters confirms that this was a run of 1000 examples. This does not appear to be a free piece of paper; it feels as if it has always been on a stiff board. Condition is acceptable, with surface soiling and some light struck (fading) at top portion. See photos of some yellowish faint parallel marks in the field at upper left; they could possibly be part of the design.........there might also be light cream aspect of parts of the background as opposed to bone white.....or it could be paper yellowing. The poster is without glass and has evidently been in this state for some time.
