PORTRAITS
Monte Carlo Andre Sauret 1954 - One of only 500 copies in English from an overall limited edition of 2850, the major portion of which were offered with French preface. Original lithographic frontispiece, beautifully printed covers in colours of yellow, blue and black on white, 36 colour tipped-on plates, 60 other finely printed full-page plates in black and white. 4to, flexible lithographic wrappers over flexible boards in original glassine wrapper,housed in the original wrap-around paperboard cover and slipcase. (1) - (20), plates (21 - 147), 4 pages of tables, colophon leaf. A very fine, very bright and beautifully preserved copy, essentially as pristine, in the original glassine, slipcase and lettered chemise. This copy appears to be almost mint in condition and is highly unusual thus. The slipcase and chemise with a bit of age or light shelfwear. A BEAUTIFUL COPY OF THE LIMITED FIRST EDITION IN VIRTUALLY PRISTINE CONDITION. Created by André Saurat under the direction of Henri Matiisse, the printed was achieved on December 20, 1954. The lithography and colour printing was accomplished by Mourlot Frères, the phototypes by Louis Duval, and the typography by L’Imprimerie Union. A lovely book, this fine printing marries the printer and designer with some of Matisse's most wonderful work. A fine example of the artist's facility with pen and paint, Matisse here captures persona with a handful of lines and distills personality with a handful of hues boldly applied. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
