Henri Harpignies two original drypoints "Paysages"
Medium: original etching and drypoint. This pair of drypoints was printed in Paris in 1917 and published by Gazette des Beaux Arts. Plate sizes: 3 1/2 x 2 1/4 inches (89 x 58 mm) and 2 1/4 x 3 3/8 inches (58 x 85 mm) on cream wove paper. Signed in the plate, not by hand.
The Gazette des Beaux Arts was a Parisian art revue founded in 1859. From a print collector's point of view, it is much treasured for the original etchings and lithographs published during the 19th Century and early years of the 20th Century.
Condition: There is age-toning to the outer margins, but the etchings are clean and bright (see the second photo).
