Go Back

Theogénie

1932. Etching with remarques, captioned “Hesiodos And Mousa” in Greek in plate, signed in ink in lower margin, 36.5 x 29.9cm. Minor foxing and repairs to image upper and lower right, slight stains and paper loss to margins.

In 1930, Vollard asked Braque to illustrate a text for him; Braque chose Hesiod’s Theogeny. While 16 etchings were made for a planned edition of 50, the run was not completed due to “the slowness of the [Galanis’] printing.” Ref: Vallier #20.
