Description

:

Original etching by Armand Guillaumin. Guillaumin has signed the plate with his monogram bottom right and also etched the words Bas-Meudon into the plate. This is one of 12 original Impressionist etchings by Armand Guillaumin published in 1873 by the artistic and literary journal Paris a l'eau-forte. These are to our knowledge the first published prints in the fully-developed Impressionist style, and also the first chance the general public had to embrace or reject the new aesthetic; the first Impressionist Exhibition, in which Guillaumin took part, was not until the following April. The etching was printed by Delatre on thin China paper which was then pasted onto a page of Paris a l'eau forte. This backing sheet has yellowed slightly, not affecting the print. There is text below and on the reverse. On the reverse there is also a small etching by Jules Louis Adeline (1845-1909), Un canal.
