An original print of Pierre MacOrlan by artist Jules Pascin. Handwritten at the bottom is “épreuve unique”, meaning “single test” likely indicating the nature of the mezzoprint medium as well as Pascin’s experimentation with it. Despite the annotation, it is unlikely to be a sole impression, having been reproduced in a posthumous volume of Pascin restrikes titled "Tombeau de Pascin".
About the Artist:
Jules Pascin (1885-1930) was a French Expressionist painter born in Bulgaria to a Sephardic Jewish family. He moved to Paris in 1905 and became a part of the surge of turn of the century artists flocking to the city. He was featured in many successful exhibitions and achieved commercial success, without the critical acclaim he was longing for. He lived in the United States from 1914-1920 to avoid World War I. He became an American citizen, but returned to Paris after the war. Pascin was similar to Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec in that he drew inspiration from his surroundings and used his friends and associates as subjects.
