The Start of the Race
Le Départ de la Course or Avant la Course (original French title)
Color aquatint and etching on laid Arches paper.
Edition unknown. Likely 50 or 60, which were Ranft's usual editions. We have only seen this print on the market once more in the past 20 years.
Signed in pencil.
Small margins on the side. Very faint discoloration in the top right corner. A small tear in the lower right margin. Still a very fine impression, in good condition overall, with the colors looking vibrant.
