RENOIR18

Stella 18 -- Claude Renoir, de trois-quarts a droite

Soft-ground etching 1908, First State 162 mm x 130 mm. Very rare, few examples are known.

Second State 162 mm x 130 mm, the figure, hair and background have been somewhat reworked with burr and point. There were a very few test proof impressions made prior to the numbered edition. A proof exists on blue paper, numbered 4/50. In Sagot-le Garrec's records two etchings on green paper were made, one of which, 1/100, was lost during World War II. The only other green paper example is currently on loan to MAMA from a private collection.
