Description

:

Original colour etching by Jean-Francois Raffaelli, hand-signed in pencil. Printed on Arches laid paper. A beautiful example of Raffaelli's late Impressionist art. This etching served as the frontispiece for the catalogue of his etchings by Loÿs Delteil, Le Peintre-Graveur illustre, tome 16, published in 1923. There were 100 copies of this catalogue on Japan paper, with the etching hand-signed, and 470 ordinary copies in which the etching was not signed.

Condition

:

Excellent. The two dark spots centrally at the extreme right and left of the image are two pin holes made during the process of printing (holding the paper still for precise colour registration), and therefore occur on all copies of this print. Apart from a couple of light smudges in the margins, this print is in lovely condition.
