Aiguille de Varens (large plate) by Eleanor Mary Hughes

Aiguille de Varens (large plate)  

  Original etching.
Signed with the artist’s signature stamp.
S 395 x 258 mm; P & I 256 x 198 mm
Original Eleanor Hughes etching.

Trial proof impression in an early state of the plate, prior to the final stages of biting. In this state the plate has printed with a fine clarity of line but with less contrast than is seen in the final state of the etching. 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. Very fine original condition.
