Banque Nationale pour le Commerce et l'Industrie check, 7.25 x 3.25, filled out and signed by Picasso, "Pablo Ruiz Picasso," payable to Henri Prejger for ?689.35, August 1, 1964. In fine condition, with a block of faint toning to the endorsement side. Henri and Dorothey Prejger were early collectors of Picasso's works. A decidedly rare format boasting an even more elusive full signature—not only is this the first Picasso-signed check we have offered, but it is also the only instance in which we have ever offered an item signed "Pablo Ruiz Picasso."
