La Place des Martyrs et la Taverne du Bagne (Paris) - FELIX BUHOT
Medium: etching, drypoint, aquatint and roulette
Etching, drypoint, aquatint and roulette, 1885, Bourcard-Goodfriend 163 (iii/III), edition unknown. 13 1/4 x 17 1/2 in. Signed in the image with the artist's red owl stamp. Signed in pencil and also inscribed "épreuve d'artiste." This is a superb, luminous impression selectively inked to create unusually dramatic lighting effects throughout the composition. The margins are full and the paper is a fine, fairly heavy sheet of laid watermarked HG HALLETT paper. The condition is excellent. Pencil signed impressions of this major Buhot print are uncommon.
