Frederic Regamey’s etching, “De L'Ame Des Betes”, 1873
Frederic Regamey (aka Frédéric Régamey) (1849-1925)
“De L'Ame Des Betes” (transl.) “Of the Soul of the Beasts”—no doubt a reference to René Descartes’ [1596–1650] proposition that animals do not feel anything and do not think because they do not speak, 1873.
Etching on fine cream laid paper, trimmed with a small margin around the image borderline (as published) and backed with a support sheet.
Size: (sheet) 10.2 x 9.3 cm; (image borderline) 9.4 x 8.5 cm.
Condition: a delicate impression showing slight plate movement, trimmed with a narrow margin (3 mm) around the image borderline, in near pristine condition and laid onto a support sheet of millennium quality washi paper.
I am selling this exquisite and very small etching of a cat, which I see as seemingly breathing in the life of Paris from its high perch with birds flying past in formation, for AU$227 (currently US$155.80/EUR138.85/GBP126.28 at the time of posting this print) 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 this gorgeous etching of a French cat in a state of contemplative bliss, please contact me (email@example.com) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
