Street in Treboul (Brittany)

Date
1899
Description

Rue à Tréboul (original French title)

Color lithograph on wove paper.
References: Fields pg. 77; Le Stum pg. 82.
Plate 2 from “Le Beau Pays de Bretagne”.
From the signed edition of 100, scarce, signed or unsigned.
Printed and published by Eugène Verneau, Paris.
Signed in blue pencil.

The sheet is backed on board, and the wide original margins trimmed (but still a few inches on each side).  Both issues are unobtrusive in our opinion.  Priced accordingly.

Despite the fact that this work, like most of Rivière's lithographs, was printed in a large edition, it only surfaces rarely.  Over the years it has become our suspicion that some editions, especially a few created early in the collaboration with publisher Eugène Verneau, were either never printed in full, or that sizable parts of these were lost at some point in time.
