Aiguille de Varens (small plate)  

  Original etching.
Signed with the artist’s signature stamp.

Original Eleanor Hughes etching.

Trial proof impression in an early state of the plate, before much of the mid-ground landscape was fully introduced and prior to the final stages of biting. From the artist’s own personal collection.

The Aiguille de Varens is one of the most dramatic peaks in the Haute-Savoie region of the French Alps.

On cream laid paper with full margins and deckle edge. Excellent original condition.
