Jean-Emile Laboureur (1877-1943), L’Arrosoir, etching, 1902, signed and dated (o2) in pencil lower right [also signed and dated in the plate lower left]. Reference: Laboureur 31, second state (of 2), from the edition of about 10 in this state (another 10 in the first state). 5 1/4 x 7 1/4, the sheet 8 3/4 x 13 1/4 inches
A very good impression of this early and rare Laboureur etching. The dating in pencil suggests this was done in ’02; S. Laboureur calls for an “edition” numbered 1-10 in ’03.
The person illustrated is the artist’s father.
Signature: signed and dated in pencil [also signed and dated in the plate]
