Le Long de la Rive by Alphonse Legros

Le Long de la Rive  

  Original etching with drypoint.
Signed in pencil.
Ref: Bliss/Malassis & Thibaudeau 338 ii
S 241 x 291 mm; P & I 174 x 217 mm
Very fine signed proof impression of this archetypal Legros landscape. This is a comparatively scarce drypoint by Alphonse Legros – no impression was available for the comprehensive exhibition of the printed works of Alphonse Legros in Paris in 1904 (Soulier).

On off-white laid paper with full margins and deckle edge. Faintest suggestion of mild discolouration, otherwise generally very fine original condition.
