Louise France, Three-Quarter Length Portrait
Drypoint on laid paper.
Reference: Tabanelli 89.
An artist’s proof, before the signature was added in the blank top left quadrant. Before the edition of 50. Scarce as such.
Signed in pencil.
Provenance: unknown collector, likely French, bearing a “AA” in circle monogram stamp (very faint) in the bottom center sheet edge (see here).
A brilliant impression with rich dark burr. The slightest discoloration due to mat burn on the recto. Faint glue residue throughout the verso. A sheet backing this print, without evident purpose, was removed. Overall in very good condition despite noted condition issues.
