Teeny. Original linocut, 1938. Edition unknown (c. 1200). Published in the Christmas 1938 issue of the deluxe art review, XXe Siecle. (This is not the reduced-size restrike published in Homage à Matisse in 1970). Teeny was the nickname of Matisse's daughter-in-law. In Pablo Picasso Lithographs and Linocuts 1945-1964 Chicago, 1998), R. Stanley Johnson writes that "The first uses of linocuts by significant artists can probably be dated to two works by Matisse and Miró in 1938. These wre followed by two linocuts by Picasso, Head of a Woman and The Squab [Le Pigeoneau], which were used as book illustrations." (p. 16). The Matisse to which he refers is this one (for the Miró Femme, please click on the link). Image size: 302x227mm. Price: $2500.
