Alberto Giacometti Signed Lithograph: Nude with Flowers (Nu aux Fleurs)

Giacometti once remarked: ‘In a fire between a Rembrant and a cat, I would save the cat.’ Luckily for us he didn’t apply the same devil may care attitude to his own legacy and work. These original Alberto Giacometti signed lithographs are lovingly printed and signed by the artists himself.

Size:  Image: 14½ x 11 in. (370 x 280 mm.). Sheet: 23½ x 19¾ in. (600 x 550 mm.)

Edition: 89/90.

Literature: Herbert Lust “Alberto Giacometti The complete graphics” Number 32.Galerie Maeght Catalogue number 233.

Published by: Maeght Editeur, Paris.

Note: In October 1959 Giacometti met Yvonne Marguerite Poiraudeau, a prostitute in a bar. She called herself Caroline and she was 21 years old whilst the artist was 58. Caroline was particularly adept at using her eyes seductively and soon she began to pose for the artist.  Wanting a part of her that no one else could touch, he purchased the bottom of one of her feet as his exclusive terrain. He made a number of portraits of her.

As with all our original lithographs, etchings, drawing and paintings the work has been profesionaly and sensitvely framed by our associates.
