Condition: both etchings are near faultless impressions in near pristine condition apart from slight age-related darkening towards the edges of the margin in “le Dejeuner” and there are minor printer’s creases in “Eude de Nu.”
I am selling this pair of female nude studies by one of the remarkably rare well-documented Parisienne female printmakers during the Belle Époque for AU$350 in total for the two etchings (currently US$251.73/EUR220.59/GBP190.86 at the time of posting this listing) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world (but not, of course, any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries).
If you are interested in purchasing these very beautiful nudes that hint at Delasalle’s reverence for Rembrandt, please contact me (email@example.com) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
