JEAN-CONSTANT-RAYMOND RENEFER – Cantonnement à Bras (Meuse), 1915
Sheet size: 180x270 mm
Image size: 120x200 mm
Edition: c.1500 – Signed in plate
A magnificent original etching with aquatint by Renefer, signed and dated 1915 in the plate lower right, with the title in the plate lower left. Published by the Gazette des Beax-Arts in 1917; printed on wove paper. The etching itself is in fine condition. Below it on the right, quite faint, is the collection stamp of the former owner, the Providence Atheneum. We would recommend hiding this behind a mount, especially as the sheet itself has yellowed around the edges, where it was not protected by the tissue guard that has kept the etching itself from coming to any harm. This is an exceptional contemporary image of WWI; an artistic report from the Front Line. Ref: Sanchez & Seydoux 1917-4. Condition: Excellent, see description.
