Superb depiction of Cubist still lives. One of the most remarkable pochoir books. A superb depiction of Cubist still lives, harlequin musicians and the masks and theatrics of the Commedia dell'Arte.

'The Fleurs et Masques pochoirs are whimsical (almost resembling playing cards) but at the same time sacred and profane. Throughout, Christian iconography is evident: the mother and child reminiscent of Mary and Jesus; "Ichthus" fish and pigeons substituted for doves, perhaps, and grapes representative of an evangelical banquet' (Charlotte Hodgson of the Victor Batte-Lay Trust).

First edition, one of only 125 sets; folio (47 x 33 cm); 16 colour pochoir plates by Jean Saudé under the supervision of Severini, some heightened with gold; original printed boards, original slipcase; spine darkened, slipcase stained.
