    Three impressions are carefully annotated by the printer with details of the states and colours, and also inscribed with the date of printing. Five impressions in all.

    An important group for understanding the creative methodology by which Picasso, with the close involvement of his printer, worked his way in linocut towards a finished image. With the printer’s signature and annotations, the group is undoubtedly unique in this form.

    1) Baer’s first state of ‘Premier plateau’
    An impression of the first state of ‘Premier plateau’ in black directly onto paper. Baer records only one such impression with an inscription, however as our impression does not bear and inscription, at least one more impression must have been printed and not seen by Baer.

    2) Baer’s second state of ‘Premier plateau’
