Original etching with drypoint by Philip Zilcken (Dutch, 1857-1930) after a painting by Paul Jean Clays. Printed by Paul Moglia on laid paper. Published by the Gazette des Beaux-Arts. Painter, etcher, title, publisher and printer are credited below. Ref: Sanchez & Seydoux 1900-1. This lovely plate is slightly marred by a white wiggly line visible in the sky to the left above the tallest mast, which seems to have been caused by a hair on the plate when printing. Condition: Very good, see description.
