I am selling this exceptionally beautiful portrait by an artist who is justifiably famous for his sensitivity and technical brilliance in handling the drypoint point needle, for a total cost of AU$257 (currently US$286.07/EUR186.05/GBP137.37 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 portrait of a young Parisian woman fashionably dressed in the spirit of the Belle Époque as perceived by a Swiss artist (arguably) influenced by the sprit of Impressionism, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
