Note: In 1974 Marguerite and Georges Duthuit, daughter and son in law of the artist, began plans to publish a work on primitive art. Une Fete en Cimmerie was a poetic essay by George on the subject of the Eskimoes. Matisse became involved since much of his oeuvre was concerned with a similar subject matter. Our aquatint depicts an Eskimoes head influenced by the art of those peoples.
