Auguste Brouet’s etching, “Waiter in a Restaurant”, c1931

Auguste Brouet (1872–1941)

“Waiter in a Restaurant” (descriptive title only and I may be reading the scene incorrectly), c1931, possibly a proof before publication in Paris in 1931 by (variously) Editions d'Art Devam/Maitre Imprimeur R. Coulouma/Societe Nouvelle des Editions d'Art Devambez as an illustration to Joris-Karl Huysmans’ (1848–1907) “Marthe, histoire d'une fille”.

Etching on heavy buff coloured wove paper.

Size: (sheet) 32.3 x 24 cm; (plate) 19.4 x 13.9 cm.

Condition: a strong and well-printed impression with generous margins in pristine condition (i.e., there with no tears, holes, folds, abrasions, stains, foxing or signs of handling).

I am selling this seemingly simple etching showing the artist’s skill and confidence in capturing a scene with a minimal number of strokes, for AU$298 (currently US$201.14/EUR193.26/GBP169.90 at the time of posting 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 freely executed etching exemplifying the amazing draughtsmanship that excited earlier writers that Brouet might be the future Rembrandt, please contact me ( and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
