The sheet has apparently the full margins and the condition is fine other than for two subtle hinges on the left edge verso, not showing on the front. According to Harris (revised edition, 1990), there were two different 1863 printings of this plate, this one for the Société des Aquafortistes, the first published printing (1863). "Imp. Delâtre, rue Saint-Jacques, 363, Paris," appears to the left of the printed verse, "Paris, Publié par A CADART & LUQUET, Editeurs, 79 Rue Richelieu" appears in the lower right, just below the image. The Cadart & Luquet blindstamp is also present in the lower margin, center. Number "67" appears in the upper right which refers to this as Plate 67 of Eaux-fortes modernes, 2nd year, 2nd issue. (The second printing lacks the the words"Ed.Manet sculpt.") The subject of this lovely print is Lola Melea who was a principal dancer with the Royal Ballet of Madrid. The Ballet appeared in Paris in 1862 at the Hippodrome theatre and Manet asked the dance troupe to pose for him. He also executed an oil painting of the same subject as well as a lithographic sheet music cover. The painting is now in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.

Etching, 1927, Van Es D121, edition 15. 6 x 9 3/4 in. Signed and numbered in pencil. this is a superb impression with full margins. The condition is excellent. This is a nice example of Mesquita's "sensitivic" caricature etching style which began about 1910 and lasted until 1940. He produced these works in small editions and they were done primarily for fun but they also often have mystical and religious overtones and are ripe with social commentary. They are unique in the history of Dutch art and are an important aspect of Mesquita's graphic work.
