A 1959 lithograph after a drawing from a sketchbook of modern artist Pablo Picasso (1881-1973). This piece depicts a portrait of an abstract, partially nude figure. The figure wears a richly colored patterned jacket in red, green and blue. The figures quintessentially Cubist face seems to be viewed from the side, while their eyes look to the front. Displayed behind a white mat with a black wooden frame. 

This lithograph was pulled from the publication Carnet de la Californie, a collection of lithographs faithfully reproduced from a facsimile of a sketchbook that Picasso worked in from "November 1, 1955 to January 4, 1956." According to the introduction of the publication, "On every page, whatever was traced by Picasso's hand has been reproduced with great accuracy by dedicated craftsmen using the most modern processes of lithography." The portfolio is comprised of 25 lithographs printed in color and spiral bound, from the edition of 1000 published by Editions Cercle d'Art, Paris.
