La Cardeuse -  MILLET

La Cardeuse
Etching, 1855-56, Delteil 15, Melot 15, only state. 10 1/4 x 7 in. A superb, early impression well before the reprints by Frederick Keppel. Printed on antique green-grey laid paper without watermark.

La Cardeuse (Woman Carding Wool) -  MILLET

La Cardeuse (Woman Carding Wool)
Etching, 1855-56, Melot 15, only state, edition unknown. 10 1/8 x 6 7/8 in. Unsigned as usual. This is a very fine impression printed on thin, antique laid paper without watermark. The margins are substantial measuring about 1" on all sides. The condition is quite good with just the slightest trace of discoloration along the opening of a previous mat. This impression is better than most we've seen.

Man Leaning on a Spade (L'homme Appuye sur sa Beche) -  MILLET

Man Leaning on a Spade (L'homme Appuye sur sa Beche)
Etching, before 1848, Melot 3, Delteil 3; only state. Edition unknown. 3 1/4 x 2 11/16 in. Unsigned as usual. This fine, crisp impression is printed on medium Japanese paper. The margins are full measuring about 1" to 1 3/4" all around. The condition is excellent. This appealing, early work by Millet foreshadows his larger more detailed work of similar peasant subjects shown laboring in the fields. The edition sizes of Millet etchings are generally unknown.
