La Vallee de Franchard (Foret de Fountainebleau) - AUGUSTE LEPERE - Wood engraving

French, (1849-1918)

Wood engraving, 1888, Lotz-Brissonneau 164; very small edition. 7 5/8 x 6 1/4 in. Signed in the block and signed in pencil, lower right. This is a superb "fume" impression in fine condition. The margins are full. According to L-B, it was hard to get fine impressions from this block and even the one used for cataloging purposes was not so good. La Vallee is described by Judith Pillsbury as "one of the most painterly of Lepere's wood engravings." (See her Catalogue #10, entry number 9.) Provenance: William Weston Gallery, London.       SOLD
