Jean-Baptiste Corot etching "Soleil Couchant" on japon paper
Jean-Baptiste Corot etching "Soleil Couchant"


Item Code: 2691

Medium: etching (etched by Théophile Narcisse Chauvel after the Corot painting). Published in Paris by L'Art ca. 1880 and printed by Francois Lienard on japon paper, and tipped (lightly mounted along the top by the publisher onto a sheet of heavy Bristol paper). The image measures 7 3/8 x 10 1/2 inches (188 x 265mm). Signed in the plate (not by hand).

This magnificent impression before letters was pulled from the plate before lettering was added for the final published state.  A lucky find!
