Original Paul Huet lithograph.
Excellent impression in the second state of three, as issued by Charles Motte for the series Paysages par Paul Huet, 1829-30.
This truly romantic landscape is one of Paul Huet’s most characteristic printed works. The strong chiaroscuro yet delicate balance of shade shows Paul Huet’s exceptional understanding of tonal effect as a lithographer. Paul Huet’s lithographs of this nature are genuinely poetic landscapes.
Outstanding early printing, with the blindstamp of Charles Motte in the lower margin of the sheet. On off-white China paper applied to original warm white wove of backing sheet, with margins. Very fine original condition.
