Brumes du Matin (Mists of the Morning)
Etching, 1882, Beraldi 779 (undescribed state after xi/XI). 9 5/8 x 14 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. With the etched "B" in the lower left, just below the image. This is a fine, luminous impression printed on a thin, greyish Japanese paper. The margins are wide and probably full. The condition is excellent. This is from the edition of 100 printed by Keppel around 1900. A detailed explanation of the states for this print can be found online at C & J Goodfriend and their outstanding Bracquemond exhibition "Ducking Impressions," archived from a couple years ago.

Le Vieux Coq (The Old Cock) -  BRACQUEMOND

Le Vieux Coq (The Old Cock)
Etching, 1882, Beraldi 222 (i/V), one of only about eight proofs of the first state, total edition unknown. 13 3/4 x 10 5/8 in. Signed in ink in the lower right. This is a superb impression printed on Japanese paper. The margins are wide and probably untrimmed. There's a faint suggestion of toning within an early mat opening and a thin, vertical line of old glue (?) along the left margin, well away from the image. This rare 1st state proof is from the collection of Seymour Haden (Lugt 3938) and his initials in pencil are seen in the lower right, just inside the platemark. This exceptional print is rarely encountered in early states and the provenance is impeccable. Only about twenty proofs exist of the first three states and an edition of 200 was printed in the 4th state by Dowdeswell, London. A legend was added in the upper left in the fifth state and the edition in unknown.

The Thunder Cloud (La Nuée d'Orâge) -  BRACQUEMOND

The Thunder Cloud (La Nuée d'Orâge)
Etching, 1878-1887, Beraldi 219 (vi or vii/XIII), edition unknown. 10 1/8 x 13 5/8 in. Signed in the plate, lower left. This is a superb, early impression printed on thin, cream colored laid paper. The margins are substantial and possibly full and untrimmed. The condition is fine apart from wrinkling in the lower margin below the platemark. A comparable impression is in the Rijksmuseum collection and is illustrated in the Van Gogh Museum catalogue on Bracquemond done in 1994. This publication was authored by Charlotte van Rappard-Boon. (See page 49). The influence of Rembrandt is clearly evident in this dramatic landscape.
