Title: 4. Sheaf of loveless fables
Paper: high quality special made by the Guarro house and that since then would be known as 'Picasso paper'
This is one of 32 Picasso illustrations from the book ‘Sheaf of Loveless Fables’ by Camilo José Cela, a work by the Spanish writer illustrated by Pablo Picasso in 1960, based on the painter's childhood. It is believed that this collaboration arose on June 13, 1960 in Cannes (France) when the Malaga artist read to some friends, including the Galician writer, ten poems about his childhood in Malaga. It consists of two volumes bound in leather with 32 illustrations and a drypoint by Pablo Picasso. This drypoint is an original, unsigned etching, dated "20.3.62" and signed on copper, an engraved composition for the book "Sheaf of loveless fables".
