Sheet size: 330x255 mm
Edition: 200 – Signed by artist
Original serigraph/silkscreen by Nicolas Carréga, signed in pencil by the artist. Printed on wove paper. Published in Sujet 4 [1951], Autoportrait. The Sujet series of themed print portfolios published silkscreen prints by many of the young post-war figurative artists of La Jeune Peinture. The print collective Sujet was edited and published by one of the contributors Philippe Cara Costea, and although it is not specified, we assume that this print was editioned by the artist himself with the assistance of Cara Costea. Sujet was published in an edition of 200 copies; this comes from no. 33. Copies have become very scarce. Condition: Excellent.
