Observations

This etching is hand signed in brown crayon by the artist "G.Braque" at the lower right margin. It is also hand numbered in pencil from the edition of 50, at the lower left margin. The work was printed in a limited edition of 50 hand signed and numbered impressions. It was printed by Galanis in 1932. This is the tenth plate from a series of 16 etchings that illustrate Hesiod’s “The Theogony”, which was commissioned by Ambroise Vollard, Paris.
The paper bears the Van Gelder watermark in the lower margin.
Note: Braque never discussed his fascination with Greek themes, but it is known that he first became interested in the art and literature of the very early (and rather unfashionable) Geometric or Protoattic periods, c.900-600 BC, in the early 1930s.
