Works by Salvador Dali (1904-1989) include a pair of lithographs done in 1966 and based on the “Our Father” prayer found in Matthew 6:7-13. One is titled Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread and the other Amen. Both are original color lithographs on wove paper and signed and dated in the stone. The dimensions of each are identical, too: 13 inches by 15-7/8 inches. Both are in excellent condition.
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) will be represented by two works. The first, executed circa 1939, is a signed linocut titled Pigeonneau (The Young Pigeon). A linocut is a variation on a woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum, mounted on a wood block, is used for the relief surface on watercolor paper. The other work is an unsigned original 24-color lithograph from 1961 titled Picadores I. Both are excellent.
Offerings by Marc Chagall (1887-1985) include a biblical-themed original color lithograph titled The Garden of Eden (I) (circa 1960, 10-7/16 inches by 13-15/16 inches); and a circus-themed color lithograph on arches wove paper titled Le Cirque Lithographe (circa 1957, 25-14 inches by 16-1/4 inches). Both of these unsigned lithographs exhibit outstanding vibrant and brilliant colors.
