Description

Very rare. This impression appears to be editioned "1/3", Thein/Lasansky lists the edition at 8 and the plate as having been destroyed.

A field worker walks between 2 burros which are laden with sugar cane in Argentina. Lasansky's interest in Picasso's work can be found in the rendering of the composition. Lasansky annotated this work as being from "Buenos Aires" in the lower right corner, beneath his signature.
