Medium: original etching, aquatint, drypoint and roulette. Plate 17 of the "Miserere et Guerre" series. Catalogue reference: CR 70; W 124. Executed in 1923 and published by Ambroise Vollard in 1948 in an edition of 450 (the first and only printing).

The Miserere series is considered Rouault's greatest accomplishment; and indeed, one of the masterpieces of 20th Century printmaking. Provenance: this etching was once part of the Vincent Price Collection, and their Certificate of Authentication has been conserved and is included with the sale.

Condition: there is a mat stain and age-toning to the paper; altogether a rich and magnificent impression.
