A pencil signed color etching (aquatint), 11 1/4" by 9 3/4" (25" by 22 1/2" framed) by the major French-born artist ANDRE MASSON (1896-1987), numbered at lower left margin 43/50. The title is "Ame Errante" (Wandering Soul) and the work was published in the year 1973. Masson's major oil paintings have exceeded $900,000 at auction, with many over the $500,000 mark, yet his signed prints remain inexplicably affordable. A longtime friend of Miro, he is considered a major Surrealist and a link between Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism. The artist, born in France, was seriously injured during World War I and that experience greatly influenced his outlook and thereby his work. He lived in Spain during the mid 1930's and the United States in the first half of the 1940's, before returning to France. He had interactions with Ernest Hemingway and Gertrude Stein, and other figures of note. I believe, considering his importance, that Masson's prints are seriously underpriced in the current market.
