Training the Dog (L'Education du Chien), or, In the Snow (Dans la Niege) -  ROUSSEL

Training the Dog (L'Education du Chien), or, In the Snow (Dans la Niege)
Lithograph printed in colors, 1893, Salomon 10, Stein & Karshan 76; edition 100. 12 7/8 x 7 1/2 in. Signed on the stone, lower right. Signed and numbered in pencil in the lower left corner of the sheet. This is a very fine impression with full margins. The condition is fine apart from minor rippling along the top edge of the sheet. This stellar Nabis print was published in Album 1 of L'Estampe Originale in 1893 and was printed by Ancourt. The blindstamp of the publication (Lugt 819) appears in the lower right corner of the sheet. "During his Nabis years, François-Xavier Roussel, known as Ker, was influenced by Japanese prints. This color lithograph--particularly the slim, columnar trees, whose branches are cropped from view--may have been inspired by Utagawa Hiroshige's vertical format landscape series One Hundred Famous Views of Edo, which also includes snow scenes. For the Nabis, pets were intimate members of the household, and thus worthy of inclusion in their domestic and garden views." See pg 210 of "Private Lives, Home and Family in the Art of the Nabis, Paris 1889-1900," by Mary Weaver Chapin and Heather Lemonedes Brown (2021) published by the Cleveland Museum of Art.
