Lithograph printed in dark brownish black on Chine appliqué, circa 1900. 217x275 mm; 8 5/8x10 7/8 inches, full margins. Edition of 108. Signed by Pissarro in pencil, lower left, and annotated in pencil, lower margin. Published Hessèle, Paris. From 25 Lithographies. A very good impression of this scarce lithograph.

With--The original justification folder signed by both Pissarro and Thornley in pencil.

Pissarro likely acted on the advice of Edgar Degas, who had collaborated with Thornley on a suite of lithographs after his drawings (Reed/Shapiro 25b) during the late 1880s, when he decided to create the current lithograph.
