Repos du Dimanche Dans le Bois (A Peaceful Sunday in the Wood) - CAMILLE PISSARRO
Medium: etching with drypoint
Etching with drypoint, 1891, Delteil/Cailac 99 (iii/III), edition of only about 17 lifetime impressions; about ten impressions in this, the third state. 7 x 11 1/2 in. Signed, numbered and titled in pencil. This is a superb, luminous impression of this large and outstanding work by the artist. The paper is a medium weight Japanese with probably the full margins. (There's a deckle edge on three sides.) The condition is fine apart from minor discoloration on the extreme left edge of the margin. The print is inscribed, "2e épreuve d'état, no. 11," and it's titled in pencil by the artist "Repos du dimanche (Z)." According to the revised Delteil catalogue, an intermediate state exists between the second and third states. There was an additional posthumous edition of 18 stamped and numbered impressions. The cancelled zinc plate is in the collection of the New York Public Library.
