The Scavenger (Le Vidangeur) - JAMES ENSOR
Etching, 1896, Taevernier 106, Croquez 105; only state. 4 3/16 x 3 1/8 in. Signed in the plate, lower right. Signed and dated in pencil. Countersigned on the verso and titled in pencil. This is a fine impression printed with light plate tone on a cream simili Japon paper. The condition is fine apart from three minor scuff marks in the margins, well away from the image. The margins are probably full measuring about 3 inches on all sides. This engaging little print reminds us of Rembrandt's many studies of beggars.
