L'averse (The Downpour)
Drypoint with aquatint printed in colors, 1898, Crauzat 24, edition 35 (25 in color). 9 1/2 x 4 7/8 in. Signed and numbered in colored pencil. This is a fine impression on cream laid ARCHES paper in good condition. The margins are full with a deckle edge on all sides. (The paper is toned within an earlier mat opening and there's a soft horizontal scuff in the image.) This fine early work is found in the Metropolitan Museum in New York and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

Les Deux Trottins -  STEINLEN

Les Deux Trottins
Etching and aquatint, 1902, Crauzat 65 (iii/III); one of three proofs in the third state. 9 x 5 3/4 in. Signed in the plate and signed in pencil. Furthermore, this superb impression is inscribed "essai" (trial proof.) The condition is fine. The margins are wide if not full. Crauzat lists 19 proofs plus three trials, as we have here, in the third state. This is a rare print as such and so very typical of Steinlen's best imagery.
