Edgar Degas monotype "Les Ciseaux"
Edgar Degas "Les Ciseaux"


Item Code: 450

Medium: engraving. This recreation (after the original monotype) was printed in a limited edition of 1000 and published in Paris in 1948 by Quatre Chemins. This impression was printed on Marais paper by L'Imprimerie d'Art G. Bouan and shows a platemark similar to an etching; the actual original Degas monotypes are virtually unobtainable and this edition makes an affordable alternative. Plate size: 8 5/8 x 6 3/8 inches (220 x 162 mm). Not signed.

Condition: there is age-toning to the paper.
