  Original etching.
Signed in pencil.
Ref: Wright 13; Fletcher 13

Original G.L.Brockhurst etching.

Very fine signed proof impression in the only known state of the plate. From the only edition of 40 signed proofs (43 in all). The plate for this etching is known to have been cancelled.

The sitter for this etching was Marguérite Folin, the sister of Brockhurst’s first wife, Anaïs. G.L.Brockhurst was to have an unfortunate liaison with Marguérite, who was later to be cited in the Brockhursts’ subsequent divorce proceedings.

On cream wove paper, with full margins and deckle edge. Very good original condition.
