Edgar Degas (1834-1917) (after)
‘En attendant le client’
Original engraving (etching and aquatint) after a monotype
On 25 x 32.5 cm Rives wove paper.
INFORMATION: Circa 1880, Degas began a series of monotypes inspired by the brothels of Paris. These artworks remained in his personal collection and were purchased in the early
1920s by Ambroise Vollard (the famous art dealer of Picasso, Cézanne, Renoir and Georges Rouault). He entrusted them to Maurice Potin who set them in copper and printed them. Vollard finally published them circa 1935 in two portfolios in a limited edition of approximately 350 copies.
The engraving in this lot comes from the archives of the engraver Maurice Potin.
In very good condition, the right edge of the sheet slightly yellowed and the right margin has two tiny spots of foxing (see photos).
