Description

Le Ruisseau or Les Lavendières en Bretagne (original French title)

Color lithograph printed chine paper.
References : Fields pg 76; Le Stum.
Plate 12 from the series titled "Les Aspects de la Nature".
One of 25 impressions from the deluxe signed edition.  These deluxe signed impressions are nearly impossible to find today.
Aside from the regular edition, stated at 500, but unlikely, considering how scarce this composition is today.
Signed and numbered “no. 20” in red crayon.

Faint water stains, mostly visible on the verso and in the left bottom margin.  Faint soiling in the bottom and left margins.  A short tear, away from the image in the right margin.  The colors perfectly fresh, and the image in very fine, unrestored condition.  The overall condition of this work is still very good overall, considering size and age.
