Etchings, Lithographs and Books

Marie Laurencin lithographs and etchings are featured at the Lockport Street Gallery. Laurencin is best known for her illustrations (etchings, lithographs, and illustrated books) of beautiful women. The images 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. Marie Laurencin etchings, lithographs, and books are catalogued by Daniel Marchesseau in the book “Marie Laurencin Catalogue Raisonne de L’Oevre Grave.”   Also she was the mistress of the poet/artist Apollinaire.  He is the father of Surrealism. She is one of Modern Art’s most exceptional artists. The edition size of her signed etchings and lithographs is quite small.  Therefore, they are usually around 100.   There are numerous restrike impressions.  These are signed in the plate. We feature original signed etchings and lithographs.
