Against a lively configuration of overlapping segments of grey, blue and red, two unhurried potential customers survey the latest offerings at a Parisian newsagent’s stall. The seated silhouetted figure in the background awaits their choice. Swiss artist Lill Tschudi made this arresting linocut print in 1933 in Paris, where she had moved to study with Futurist painter Gino Severini and Cubist painters André Lhote and Fernand Leger. Tschudi first learned the technique at the Grosvenor School of Modern Art. She remained prolific, making sixty-five linocut prints between 1930 and 1939, exhibiting most of them initially in London.
