Le Joueur d’Orgue (original French title)

Etching and drypoint printed on thin laid paper.

Impression of the published state; very likely the one reproduced in the catalogue raisonné (page 173).  Edition of circa 150.
Provenance: Michael Wentworth, with his stamp (Lugt 4860).

A very fine impression, with small margins, as usual.  In very fine condition, aside from a narrow band of mounting tape on the sheet edges, verso.  Faint line in the left margin, verso, as well as a short tear.  Still, overall in very fine condition.
