Aiguille de Varens (small plate) by Eleanor Mary Hughes

Aiguille de Varens (small plate)  

  Original etching.
Signed with the artist’s signature stamp.
S 396 x 243 mm; P & I 227 x 150 mm
Original Eleanor Hughes etching.

Excellent proof impression of the completed image from the artist’s own personal collection. A particularly fine proof impression printed just after the completion of the detailed mid-ground landscape and after the etching had been variously re-bitten to emphasise contrast across the design.

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.
