I am selling this superb etched masterwork showing a panoramic sweep of the port at Boulogne-sur-Mer—a coastal city in Northern France—as seen at the beginning of the 20th century when the tide has retreated, for the total cost of AU$288 (currently US$211.99/EUR183.01/GBP156.36 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.
If you are interested in purchasing this sensitively executed etching—note that the print has been inked very subtly so that the foreground is printed in a darker tone of ink than the distance—please contact me (email@example.com) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
