marieMarie Laurencin – France (1883 – 1956)

Etchings, Lithographs and Books

Marie Laurencin is best known for her illustrations (etchings, lithographs, and illustrated books) of beautiful women that exude intelligent serenity and lyric seductiveness through their alluring dark eyes. Her favorite colors/tones include pastel gray, rose, and blue. She was born and educated in Paris and formed legendary friendships and working relationships with members of the Cubist and Fauvist schools, including Picasso. She was also the mistress of the poet/artist Apollinaire, who is the father of Surrealism. Marie Laurencin is one of Modern Art’s most exceptional artists. Her etchings, lithographs, and books are catalogued by Daniel Marchesseau in the book “Marie Laurencin Catalogue Raisonne de L’Oevre Grave”. The edition size of her signed etchings and lithographs is quite small, usually around 100, although there are numerous works that are restrike impressions that are signed in the plate. We feature original signed etchings and lithographs.

The works are shown unframed to best display the image, but we will be happy to custom frame them to your specifications.
