Lettered below the image “BEETHOVEN” and further below on the right in a block of five lines of text: “GRAVURE SUR BOIS ORIGINALE / DE JACQUES BELTRAND POUR / LA “ LÉGENDE DORÉE / DES GRANDS HOMMES” / Sts NATIONALE DES BEAUX-ARTS SALON 1907

I am selling this small woodcut masterpiece for AU$90 (currently US$70.24/EUR61.18/GBP54.79 at the time of this listing) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world.

This is the second portrait of Beethoven by Beltrand that I have posted. Unlike the previous post in which the print was hand-signed by the artist in a very small edition of 40 impressions, this original print was published in a much larger edition by the Gazette des Beaux-Arts.
