Place Pigalle in 1878
La Place Pigalle en 1878 (original French title)
Etching, aquatint, and drypoint on Japan paper, 1878.
Reference: Bourcard & Goodfriend 129 vi/vi.
Impression from the final state, the fifth according to Bourcard, and the sixth according to Goodfriend.
Despite the annotation “4e Etat” (4th state), which is in the hand of Buhot himself, this isn’t one of his earlier states. The artist is known to have lost track of his own states and sometimes annotated impressions inaccurately. Buhot may also not have counted certain steps as actual states.
Signed with the artist’s red owl stamp (Lugt 977).
A very fine impression in excellent condition.
