The drawing is colored pencils on paper in excellent condition, as it was stored for decades in a dark closet. It is unsigned, but was authenticated as Picasso's work by a NY appraisal when given as a wedding present to my late father, Edwin Honig (poet and translator) and his second wife, Margot. It features many familiar Picasso themes and items seen in photographs of his Nice studio at that time, chairs, ceramics, arched windows with palm trees beyond, a child's face, a bird, a wood stove. It is dated in upper left hand corner.
Previously owned by poet Edwin Honig, prior to that, by an English count.
