Original two-colour woodcut by Auguste Louis Lepère (1849-1918) after a statue by Auguste Rodin. Scratched into the block bottom right is A Lepère d'ap A Rodin, but (apart from the A Rodin bit) this is very hard to read. Published by The Studio, London, with the Studio inkstamp below. Printed on cream wove paper. There is one foxmark near the bottom righthand corner of the sheet, well away from the image and not affecting it. Condition: Excellent, see description.
