Description

1969 Galerie Rosengart exhibition catalog, inscribed by Picasso with a charming original sketch

Exhibition catalog entitled "Picasso: Aujourd'hui" from the Galerie Rosengart in Lucerne, 1969, 4.75 x 7.25, signed and inscribed on the first free end page in fountain pen, "Pour Madame Graindorge, Picasso, le 21.11.69," playfully sketching a face at the bottom. The catalog's softcover wrappers colorfully reproduce a Picasso sketch, with his facsimile signature printed in the upper left corner. In fine condition, with the first page of the introductory essay detached but present. "Madame Graindorge" is presumably the wife of Fernand Graindorge, a noted patron of modern art whose collection included works by Picasso, Magritte, Arp, Matisse, and Le Corbusier.
