Description

Les Deux Amis  (original French title)

Etching and drypoint printed on laid paper.
Reference: Wentworth 55.
Impression of the published state, with the flags colored, as is often the case.
Edition of circa 150, but surprisingly scarce today.
Bearing the artist’s red monogram stamp, in the plate.
Bearing the red “JCC” collector stamp (not in Lugt).

A very fine impression, in very good condition.  Small margins, small paper loss in the upper left corner, the lower plate edge reinforced (weakened due to printing pressure), and faint scattered foxing in the sheet bottom.  All issues minor, overall still in very fine condition.
