Original Ethel Gabain lithograph.
Beautiful atmospheric impression of the completed image. The number '1' proof from the only edition of 24 signed proofs in the second state (29 in all), printed by the artist herself. The stone is known to have been effaced.
Ethel Gabain’s unique ability to depict sentiment is seen here at its most powerful. This exquisite lithograph of a young bride standing in pensive solitude on the morning of her wedding day has a poignant charm mingled with a feeling of tenderness and intimacy unique to Gabain’s work. There is a restrained elegance to this image which, tinged with Gabain’s French stylishness, places it amongst the masterpieces of modern lithography.
On fine Japan paper with full margins. Excellent condition.
