This very special crayon transfer drawing was done in 1931 and comes directly from Atelier Mourlot. Matisse particularly liked to make these transfer drawings as he preferred to draw on a sheet of paper and then transfer the image to the stone for printing (rather than draw directly onto the lithographic stone). This piece was used to create his famous Danseuse Acrobates suite and is accompanied by a certificate of provenance from Atelier Mourlot.

This piece is one of a very small collaboration series between contemporary artists Robert Mars and William Goodman. They forged a friendship through mutual appreciation of each other’s work and recognized that their individual styles would fuse beautifully. In December of 2015 they came together in Rob's New York studio to create a series of 6 pieces based on modern-day cultural icons, which includes Play Win Beckham (above).

An extremely rare artist proof from 1976, this lithograph features a pencil dedication from the artist to Jacques Mourlot and his wife, Liliane. The Mourlot family are famed Parisian printers, who in the 1920s, opened Atelier Mourlot and became the largest, most renowned printer of lithographic posters in the world. Atelier Mourlot produced major graphic works with artists such as Chagall, Picasso and Matisse throughout the 20th century.
