DESCRIPTION:  Reference:Sylvain Laboureur 125, only state.

A fine impression, with rich burr throughout and delicate overall plate tone, on cream wove paper; full margins (5/8 to 3/4 inch), in excellent condition.

In the "L'Express de l"Ouest" of February 18, 1914, the critic Bernesto wrote: "Cette eau-forte est une des seules manifestations en cette exposition [the XXIII exposition des Amis des Arts] de la mentalite et de l'interpretation du mouvement artistique moderne."

Laboureur created a painting of the same subject, now at Nantes, and also a drawing on a fan of the same subject (which is less cubistic than the etching); he also created a sketchy "draft" of this etching which he apparently discarded after printing only 3 examples, and then created this print (in reverse of the first plate).
