DESCRIPTION:  Reference: Mason 97, only state, from the edition of 57. In very good condition.

A very fine impression, printed on very thin laid paper.

Introductions is more successful aesthetically than the larger earlier version of the same subject matter (Introducing the Champion, M. 26). Here the figures are larger relative to the entire composition; the focus of course is on the champion and the announcer introducing him, as the challenger is being given some last minute advice by his manager in the background left. The noisy crowd, just outside the ring, cheers the fighters. The excitement is palpable.
