Primitive unsigned original black felt tip sketch of a man with raised arm accomplished by Pablo Picasso on the reverse of a 6.25 x 2.75 check made out to "Pablo Picasso" for two dollars, dated November 5, 1962. Includes the original mailing envelope postmarked at Cannes, France, which is prominently addressed in Picasso's hand in the same black felt tip to Ken Browne in Mesa, Arizona. In fine condition, with a central fold and some light toning. A unique piece of original artwork by Picasso, whose artistic sensibilities were no doubt inspired by prehistoric works—after viewing the famed cave paintings at Lascaux in 1940, he reportedly remarked: 'We have invented nothing.'
