Pablo Picasso: A selection of subjects from the deluxe edition of the Suite Vollard

Marc Rosen Fine Art specializes in prints that have not previously been offered for sale.

After Ambroise Vollard’s death, the distinguished French dealer, Henri M. Petiet, acquired all of the works on paper from the Vollard estate, including the entire edition of Picasso’s Suite Vollard, and the comprehensive collection of works Mary Cassatt that she sold to Vollard in the early years of the 20th century.

Because of our long relationship with the Petiet family, we offer an extraordinary opportunity to acquire works from the original stock of Ambroise Vollard, including uncirculated prints from both the regular and deluxe editions of the Suite Vollard, as well as works by Mary Cassatt, and a selection of prints by French artists of the Impressionist era, all in original, fresh condition.

Pablo Ruiz Picasso
(1881 – 1973)

The relationship between Picasso and art dealer, Ambroise Vollard began in Paris in 1901, when Vollard gave the artist his first one-man show.

The Suite Vollard, one of the greatest print projects of the 20th century, began early in 1934, when Picasso wanted to buy a Renoir and a Cézanne from Vollard. They agreed to exchange a body of the artist’s works on copper for the two paintings. Eventually, the suite grew to 100 works in a wide range of etching and engraving techniques, encompassing some of Picasso’s most significant themes (artist and model, the battle of love, the minotaur).
