LOT ID: 83953

Charcoal, and crayon on paper
8.25 х 5.1 in. (20.96 x 12.95 cm.)
Signed, lower left, in blue crayon
Lot description
This early crayon and charcoal drawing by Picasso is a lively street scene executed with bold, deft strokes in a reduced palette of browns and blues. In tone and theme, it is typical of Picasso’s sketches of urban life from 1900 to 1901, the moment leading up to the artist’s celebrated Blue Period. The drawing has been authenticated by both the artist’s daughter Maya Widmaier-Picasso and the artist’s son Claude Ruiz-Picasso. It measures 8.25 x 5.1 inches (21 x 13 cm) and is in good condition. It is hinged to the upper left and right edge on the reverse to the mount. The upper sheet is slightly uneven with minor paper loss to the upper right corner. There is a minor tear (approx. 1 cm) to the center lower edge. Overall charcoal rubbing to the surface of the sheet is presumably original to the artist.
