Original etching by Edouard Manet, a portrait of his sister-in-law the Impressionist painter and printmaker Berthe Morisot. Published by Paul Cassirer in 1910 in Edouard Manet sein leben und seine kunst by Théodore Duret. Printed by Pan-Presse on brown laid paper. This etching relates to Manet's 1872 painting of the same subject, Berthe Morisot with a bouquet of violets, now in the Musée d'Orsay. This etching is rarest in its original state before cancellation. Copies were then printed with holes punched right through the plate, top and bottom. The plate was then restored ("bevelled"), so that in our impression the cancellation marks are only visible as faint circles.
