The brother of artists Marcel Duchamp and Raymond Duchamp-Villon, Villon came from a close, sophisticated, and intellectual family. He began his printmaking career during the 1890s with a series of elegant scenes of turn-of-the-century Paris, but from 1911 onwards he was closely linked to the Cubist movement.Villon was among the most prolific of the Cubist printmakers. He was also among the most technically sophisticated, a master of intaglio processes. Highly systematic and analytic in his approach, Villon's prints are often, as here, closely related to his paintings and drawings.Primary Object ClassificationPrintCollection AreaModern and ContemporaryRights
