Ignace Duvivier (aka Ignaz Duvivier; Joseph Ignace Duvivier; Ignace Vivier; Ignace "du" Vivier; Matthäus Ignaz [Edler von] Vivier) (1758–1832)
“Landscape in Oval with Travellers Resting”, 1800, from the series of four oval landscape etchings, "Divers sujets de paisages dessiné et gravé par I. Viviers 1800". Note: the title page to the series is signed, titled and dated (1800).
Etching on cream wove paper.
Size: (sheet) 22.5 x 29.4 cm; (plate) 15 x 22 cm; (oval borderline) 14.4 x 19.6 cm
The Philadelphia Museum of Art holds this print and others in the same series; see: http://www.philamuseum.org/collections/permanent/3353.html?mulR=1014347096|7 and http://www.philamuseum.org/collections/results.html?searchTxt=&bSuggest=1&searchNameID=1925
Condition: richly inked, crisp impression—undoubtedly a lifetime impression based on the superb quality of the printed lines—with generous margins and in very good condition (i.e. there are no tears, holes, folds, abrasions and stains, but there is faint foxing in the margins).
I am selling this very romantic image for the total cost of AU$164 (currently US$118.55/EUR104.22/GBP92.68 at the time of this listing) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world (but not, of course, any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries).
