ÉDOUARD MANET Le Guitarrero (ou Le Chanteur Espagnol).
Etching and roulette on antique cream laid paper, 1861-62. 298x245 mm; 11 3/4x9 5/8 inches, full margins. Sixth state (of 6). A superb, richly-inked impression with strong contrasts.
Based on Manet's (1832-1883) same-titled oil painting, 1861, now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. When first exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1861, it brought the artist's first major critical success, and prompted this etched version of the subject. Guérin 16; Harris 12.
