An ensemble of works of art on paper by Francis PICABIA (1879-1953) will be part of the key highlights of the sale.
Transparence, a watercolor, ink and pencil on paper executed circa 1930, was sold to Colette Allendy -the artist‘s gallerist in Paris- by a friend of hers who, from then, kept it in her collection. The four other works, executed in charcoal, pencil, watercolor or red chalk, part of the archeologist and friend of the Picabia couple Roger Grosjean’s collection, have been kept by descent.
