In 1966 Jean-Paul Riopelle began to exhibit regularly at the renowned Galerie Maeght in Paris. As a reflection of Riopelle’s interest in works on paper, in their exhibition publication of that year were ten gouaches, which were then reproduced as lithographs. Sans titre bears a resemblance to some of the images that Riopelle was working with at that time for his prints – its marks and shapes move over softly textured backgrounds with his characteristic intuitive verve.
This work will be included in Yseult Riopelle's forthcoming volume of the catalogue raisonné on the artist's work.

Estimate: $9,000 - $12,000
