Paysage à Rouen (Côte Sainte Catherine).

Etching, 1885. 128x176 mm; 5 1/8x6 7/8 inches, full margins. Second state (of 4). According to Delteil, the only impression in this state, from a total of only 7 lifetime impressions in all four states combined. Titled and annotated "nº 1, 2e état à revoir" in pencil, lower margin. A superb, richly-inked and dark impression of this unique proof of this extremely scarce etching.

The etching is in reverse of one of Pissarro's iconic Impressionist oils of Rouen, La Côte Sainte-Catherine à Rouen, 1883, now in a private collection (Pissarro/Snollaerts 735). Delteil 55.
