Exposition d’Oeuvres récentes de Georges Braque, du Mercredi 8 Janvier au Vendredi 31 Janvier 1936, chez Paul Rosenberg…
Three black & white illus. 9 unnumbered pages. 8vo (210 x 135 mm.), orig. gray printed wrappers (a little sunned), staple-bound. Paris: P. Rosenberg, 1936.
A scarce Braque exhibition catalogue of paintings made since 1931, featuring mostly still lifes along with two nudes. It lists 20 paintings, three of which are illustrated. Rosenberg had lured Braque away from Daniel Henry Kahnweiler and his brother Léonce in 1922. Braque’s first solo exhibition at Paul Rosenberg’s famed gallery on 21, rue la Boëtie took place in 1924. The final page of this catalogue announces future exhibitions for Seurat, Picasso, Monet, Matisse and Laurencin.
Very good copy, minor dampstaining to the first blank leaf.
