Description
A small, intricate drawing by this major German Surrealist artist, done in 1969 the year of a major exhibition of his etchings at Galerie Anre-Francois Petit and the publishing of a catalogue raisonnĂ© of his etchings. This drawing may have been done in the summer, while he was vacationing at his home in Ermenonville in northern France. In October he suffered a stroke that parlyzed his left side and he was unable to work, using collaborators to finish etchings and sculptures for future exhibitions.
