[Autumn] by Henri Somm


  Original drypoint.
Signed with initials in pencil.
S 224 x 360 mm; P & I 70 x 108 mm
Beautiful signed proof impression of the freshly completed image, with rich burr to the drypoint lines. This marvellously atmospheric study of a Parisian lady sitting alone on a park bench, as a flurry of fallen leaves hurry by in the autumn breeze, is characteristic of the small masterpieces of drypoint created by Henri Somm.

On cream simile Japan paper, with full margins. One or two marks at base of sheet in outer margin, otherwise very fine condition. Image surface excellent.
