n.p. Xerox, 1963. Leaf. Fine. Item #21741 .
Single sheet of tan paper, 8-1/2m by 11 inches, bearing a xerox image of the Picasso Eagle he drew in 1954 for the Xerox Corporation.
It was used at Xerox in 1963 in order to advertise their model 914 - which was the worlds first plain paper copier. Picasso originally drew the sketch as a test for an American instructor at a conference to explore xerography. Its is said he was pleased at the result. These particular copies were reproduced on tan parchment-like paper and given to Xerox employees; the common prints for giveaway were made on standard white paper. The sketch of the eagle includes the date "3-4-54" (the date of the xerography conference).
Slight discoloration around the edges else this is a fine exemplar.
