More Information

Artist's proof of a pristine state, unknown, before the removal of the left-hand leaf on the sprig  above the roses. Pulled on Japanese paper in black ink with monotypical effects, the proof was then touched by Conconi with a brush and gray ink, used to create uniform backgrounds as much as fine hatching.

The print is dedicated in pen, lower left, alla gentile signora Maginoni/ e ai suoi buoni e bei bambini. 

On the verso are visible effects of gauffrage in corrispondence of the most intensely inked areas a character of the earlist impressions. 

In fine condition with wide margins

Provenence: private collection.
