Berthe Morisot.

Etching printed in dark brownish black on cream laid paper, 1872. 119x79 mm; 4 3/4x3 1/4 inches, full margins. Second state (of 3), before the cleaning of the lower margin, with the delicate lines in the background and before the cancellation circles upper and lower center edges; likely from the Grennevilliers edition, 1890, arranged by the artist's widow, Suzanne Manet. Ex-collection unknown collector (Lugt 93, lower center recto). A very good early impression, scarce in this issue. Guérin 59; Harris 75.
