We've already reported on the appearance of Pablo Picasso's La Dame à la Collerette in print form in Swann's New York American Prints auction on March 3.
La Dame à la Collerette is expected to bring $50,000-75,000 - so it's certainly outside the budget of entry-level investors.
However, if do happen to be an entry-level collector with a passion for Picasso, then look no further than tomorrow's Aldus auction in Paris (February 17).
This Picasso work was originally intended for a group of 12 poems written by Pierre Reverdy, noted for his "lyricism of reality". They remained unpublished until after the poet's disappearance in 1960 following self-exile in Normandy.
This work was among a number of aquatints, each featuring a model, which Picasso worked on during the winter of 1963-64 and the months of February to March 1965.
This printing is among 255 copies, and bears Picasso's own autograph. It will appear in Aldus's sale tomorrow with a far more entry-level friendly €8,000-10,000 pre-sale estimate.
