About

Drypoint
Taylor 304, Bellini (2004) 16, Calvesi – Dambruoso 258
183 x 287 mm; the sheet 335 x 455 mm
Orginal signature in pencil Boccioni at the right of bottom margin

Provenance: at the bottom right corner of the sheet dry-stamp of Libreria Prandi, Reggio Emilia.

Superb impression, with strong barbs, pulled in black ink with a rich plate-tone on thick wove paper. This is certainly a rare contemporary proof curated by Boccioni himself, as demonstrated by the unquestionable authenticity of the signature.
Very often, graphic works by Boccioni are signed, with the name of the artist, by his sister Amelia.

With large margins, in fine condition.
