Description
 
Medium: original etching. The French title "La Mort et le Bûcheron" translates to "Death and the Woodcutter". This is a rich impression on laid paper with full original margins, in excellent condition, printed by A. Salmon and published in Paris by L'Art in 1876. Size: 12 3/4 x 9 1/2 inches (plate) -- 326 x 240mm. Signed by Legros in the plate (not by hand). Jean-Francois Millet was another artist who also explored the same theme of Death and the Woodcutter. This piece is probably Legros' most famous etching.
