A fine impression of this quintessential cubist print.

In the famed exhibit The Cubist Print (1981) Burr Wallen wrote of Bar en Pennsylvanie "The jaunty cut of the jacket worn by the central figure in the Bar en Pennsylvanie makes an equally whimsical takeoff on Villon's faceted hatching, while the dapper swing curl of the young bartender pokes fun at eccentricities of Cubist hairstyle. The egg-shaped heads articulated by a single line for the nose deftly allude to simplification of form by Brancusi. In places they are left entirely blank."
