I am selling this small and exceptionally beautiful drypoint by an artist known for the technical brilliance of his drypoint prints for a total cost of AU$216 (currently US$165.25/EUR140.39/GBP119.99 at the time of this listing) including Express Mail (EMS) 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 small masterwork of drypoint capturing in the space of a coffee bean the pensive expression of an elegant young lady as her mindset drifts upon receiving what I assume is a bouquet of flowers on her lap—note the artist’s technical wizardry in suggesting the silky sheen of the lady’s gown … and her amazing wasp waist!—please contact me (email@example.com) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
