Le Pont de Pierre, à Rouen.

Drypoint printed in black on cream laid paper, 1887. 149x198 mm; 5 3/4x7 3/4 inches, full margins. Second state (of 2). One of approximately only 30 lifetime impressions in this state, from a total of approximately only 32 lifetime impressions in both states combined. Signed, titled and inscribed "Ep d'art- no 9" in pencil, lower margin. A superb, richly-inked impression of this extremely scarce print.

Pissarro made dozens of paintings of the bridges over the Seine in Rouen. This drypoint is similar in composition and point-of-view as his iconic oil, Brouillard, Matin, Rouen, 1896, private collection (Pissarro/Snollaerts 1142). Delteil 66.
