More Information

Drypoint, from the Saltimbanques Suite, signed in pencil, a superb, early proof, before steel-facing, with strong burr and plate tone, on an irregular sheet of Arches laid paper

This exceptionally rich and vivid impression is evidently the earliest proof taken, before the small number printed for the artist by Delâtre in 1905
