100 Dibujos de Diego Rivera / 100 Drawings by Diego Rivera.
Mexico City: Ediciones de Arte, 1949.
WITH A DELIGHTFUL ORIGINAL SIGNED DRAWING BY DIEGO RIVERA, FROM THE COLLECTION OF FRIDA KAHLO AND ANNOTATED BY HER.
Introduction and catalogue in Spanish, followed by an English translation. Portfolio of 54 plates reproducing 100 drawings by Rivera, almost all from Frida Kahlo's personal collection.
From a total edition of 1000 copies, this is COPY NUMBER 9, ONE OF 100 COPIES WITH A MATTED ORIGINAL DRAWING (on very good wove paper) BY DIEGO RIVERA, A WONDERFUL LITTLE PENCIL SKETCH (14 x 9.8 cm) OF A GIRL WITH A BASKET ("Niña con cesta"). It is signed by Rivera.
This is obviously a preliminary sketch for a larger drawing or panting, and Rivera's autograph annotations indicate what colors he plans to use for the girl's sombrero, blouse, and skirt.
On the verso is an annotation ("Childmade"?) BY FRIDA KAHLO.
Folio. Loose as issued in original wraps. Wraps a bit worn and darkened. Internally clean.
THE DRAWING IN ABSOLUTELY PERFECT CONDITION.
