    Pablo Picasso Signed Photo. One black and white photograph, 8.75" x 11.13, December 15, 1932. In Pablo Picasso's hand, on the verso in blue crayon, reads:

    "Ce tableau est de moi
    Paris le 15 Decembre
    23 R. La Boétie
    Paris (8e Ar)"

    The photograph is a slightly cropped image of Picasso's "The Absinthe Drinker" (1901), an oil on cardboard now part of the Melville Collection in New York. The address written on the back of the photo is where Picasso and his wife Olga lived after 1918. There, they occupied two floors and utilized the assistance of servants and chauffeurs. This lifestyle, as well as the location of the apartment in a bourgeois Right Bank neighborhood replete with galleries and art dealers, was much criticized by Picasso's friends.

    Photograph has some creasing and chipping to edges. Verso with some discoloration to the periphery.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
