    Note 1: This is an etching which was made to illustrate a publication of the work by Balzac, plate 6 in the table of etchings. It consisted of 12 etchings by Picasso and a wood engraving by Georges Aubert after a drawing by Picasso. Le chef d’oeuvre inconnu can be considered Balzacs appreciation of artistic faith expressed in painting. His character is an old painter called Frenhofer who has worked for many years on a painting entitled “La belle Noiseuse” for over 10 years. The author explores the difficulties faced by the artist with his delights in the making of the work and attempts at perfection of the finished product. He also considers the complex relationship between the artist and his model. In Frenholders eyes the model he has painted on his canvas has become his lover. His friends, however, Porbus and the young Pouissin (both famous painters) see only confused colours. When Frenhofer realises that his friends do not understand or appreciate his work he burns his painting and kills himself. Picasso does not illustrate the actual story in his etchings but explore the deeper meanings behind this and the complex relationship between artist and model. It was Ambroise Vollard who asked Picasso to illustrate Balzac\'s text in 1926 and Albert Bernard, a friend of Vollard’s who wrote the preface to the book. The young woman portrayed in this etching seems to have a likeness to Marie-Therese. See also Zervos VII - 44 & 45, dated 1926 for drawing similar works.\

    Picasso Estate Signed Editions

    Art Brokerage: Picasso Estate Signed Editions: In a time span of over 75 years, Picasso amazed the world with his versatility and genius. His art captured a unique style that was rich in personal expression and diversity. Picasso bestowed upon the world a legacy of art that was to be admired for generations. The works of art in our collection were selected from the personal collection inherited by Marina Picasso, Pablo Picasso's granddaughter. After Pablo Picasso's death in 1973, his granddaughter Marina authorized the printing of these original lithographs, which have come to be known as the Picasso Estate Collection. The lithographs were meticulously created after the original works (Oil Paintings, Watercolors, Pastels, Charcoal Drawings, etc.) by Master Chromist Marcel Salinas, who worked closely with Picasso in his lifetime. They are printed in an edition of 500 on first-quality Arches paper. To ensure authenticity, each print is signed and numbered in pencil by Marina Picasso and embossed with the estate and chromist's seals, along with the legend on the reverse "Approved by the heirs of Pablo Picasso". To ensure authenticity, each of the 500 limited edition Lithographs is numbered and signed by Marina Picasso, and is stamped with the embossed seal of the estate and the chromist. Listings wanted.
