Javier Vilato (Spanish, 1921-2000). Lithograph on paper titled "Cubist Maternity" depicting an abstract scene of mother and a child. Pencil signed along the lower right; editioned 3/140 along the lower left.

Javier Vilato, also known as a nephew and close companion of Pablo Picasso, is a Spanish artist born. In the beginning of his artistic career, Vilato experimented with printmaking, a technique that, over the years, became as important to him as painting. He worked on numerous limited illustrated editions of authors such as Federico Garcia Lorca, Claude Roy, Andree Chedid and Antonio Porchia. His work has been exhibited and housed at numerous international museums in Spain, Switzerland, Mexico, France, Italy, England and Sweden. At the end of the 1960s Javier Vilato was recognized as a major Paris engraver and invited to join the Societe des Peintres Graveurs Français.

Height: 25 1/2 in x width: 19 3/4 in.


The color is bold and bright. No visible tears or losses. No major creases- light creases that do not affect the center image throughout the recto. The sheet is very slightly toned and has undulation. Light wear along four margins, original to the artistic practice. Minute black dots throughout the recto. To the center of the upper and lower parts of the image, there are pinholes that are also visible from the verso. Along the upper left margin, foxing began to form; there is another area to the upper center margin. To the lower left and right corner, there is a crease, measuring 2 in. A few scattered light brown marks throughout the recto, particularly to the upper left quadrant. When inspected under UV light, there are scattered areas with minute fluorescent spots that are not visible under natural light; however, they do not appear to be a restoration. Along the verso, the paper is lightly toned and has light creases throughout; to the upper margin, there is an area with light brown and grey marks; throughout the verso, there are networks of minute black dots that do not affect the recto. No visible sign of restoration under UV light.
