Salomon van Abbé

1883 – 1955

Dentellière of Bruges by Salomon van Abbé

Dentellière of Bruges  

  Original drypoint.
Signed and numbered in pencil.
S 331 x 203 mm; P 260 x 180 mm; I 253 x 173 mm
Original Salomon van Abbé drypoint.

Excellent signed proof impression with rich drypoint burr. Numbered ‘1’ from the only edition of 60 signed and numbered proofs.

A dentellière is a lady who makes traditional lacework – one of the famed crafts of Belgium.

Despite being numbered from a declared edition of 60 proof impressions, for unknown reasons this particular drypoint has become one of the most scarce of Salomon van Abbé’s prints today.

On fibrous simile Japan paper with margins. Mild discolouration in outer margins of sheet, otherwise generally very good original condition.
