'Tete de Jeune Femme' Unique lithograph colored with crayon. Signed in pencil. Between 1925 and 1930 Van Dongen worked on a series of lithographs of women. The prints show faces of elegant girls or ladies. The intention was to print an edition of 100 colour lithographs of 6 different images. After the printing of proofs in black, for some reason it was decided to stop the project. Only seven numbered copies and some unnumbered proofs are known. Most of them completed with extensive handcolouring by the artist. Probably the rest of the edition was lost. Excellent condition.
