Edmond Yon, “Near the Coast at Cayeux-Sur-Mer”, 1885

Edmond Yon (aka Edmond Charles Joseph Yon) (1836–1897)

“Near the Coast at Cayeux-Sur-Mer” (Picard coast, France), 1885, illustration facing page 37 to Philip Gilbert Hamerton’s (1834–1894) “Landscape”, published in 1885 by Seeley & Co. (fl.1839–early 1900s) in London.

Etching, drypoint and dot-roulette on fine wove paper with full margins as published.

Size: (sheet) 21.3 x 31.1 cm; (plate) 16.2 x 24.3 cm; (image borderline) 14 x 21.7 cm.

Inscribed in plate below the image borderline: (left) “Edmond Yon P[inx]t & Sc[ulp]t”.

Condition: a richly inked and well-printed (near flawless) impression in a pristine condition with no tears, holes, folds, abrasions, stains, foxing or signs of handling.

I am selling this superb etching with velvety rich touches of drypoint showing a herdsman leading a cow through marshlands—possibly at the estuary of the River Somme in Baie de Somme in which the town of Cayeux-sur-Mer (mentioned in the title) is located—for AU$187 in total (currently US$122.63/EUR112.65/GBP96.25 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 marvellous etching by a true master of the craft—note how the artist has created the effect of a “splash” of light falling on the reeds in the front of the herdsman and used the silhouette shapes of leaves in the foreground to give spatial depth to the scene—please contact me ( and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
