Louise France, Three-Quarter Length Portrait

Louise France à mi-Corps (original French title)
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.

16 x 11 1/4 inches
