etching, ca. 1910 (?), the exceptionally rare first state, on medium-heavy wove paper with good though irregular margins, a
deckle edge on the left, signed and annotated by the artist "unique Úpreuve"
in pencil, traces of localized skinning from old
hinges on the verso, some faint occasional foxing and slight surface
soiling especially on the reverse, otherwise in very good condition
We have never seen a similar impression of this early state on auction, or in museum collections.
P. 196x255 mm.
S. 254x310 mm.
