Original Charles William Cain drypoint.

Very fine signed proof impression from the only edition.

One of the best known of C.W. Cain’s original drypoints and one of his larger plates, this somewhat unusual image of Burmese Dancers was considered by the artist as the companion and counterbalance to his dark and heavily worked drypoint The Nautch Dancers, depicting a group of Indian dancing girls.

On cream wove paper, watermarked J Whatman 1922, with full margins and deckle edge. Very fine original condition.
