Mary Cassatt etching and aquatint "The Coiffure"
Medium: etching and aquatint (after the original). From the replique edition published in Paris by Claude Tchou and the Bibliotheque Nationale. It is an exact rendition of the original, printed on watermarked Arches laid paper, in a limited edition of 550 issued in 1991. Plate size: 14 1/4 x 10 3/8 inches; sheet size: 22 x 16 inches. A very nice impression, as can be expected from Claude Tchou and the Bibliotheque Nationale. For the collector who cannot spend a small fortune on a first edition Mary Cassatt, this presents an affordable alternative.
Condition: this piece is not framed. It had been framed before and there
is aging and discoloration to the paper (this print is light
struck where the mat did not cover); also the
remains of old tape mounts in the margin near the edge of the sheet and a crease (the crease will really not be evident when properly matted).
