PIERRE VIDAL – Baby in a cradle, 1905
Sheet size: 210x140 mm
Image size: 100x75 mm
Edition: 150 – Signed in plate
Original colour etching by Pierre Vidal, signed in the plate. Printed by A. Porcabeuf, Paris, on wove paper. From one of 150 suites with remarques of Vidal's etchings for La Comtesse Irma by Alphonse Daudet, published by A. Romagnol. There were 350 copies of the book (in which all the etchings are printed in the text and with text on the reverse), and 150 sets of the etchings printed in colour with remarques, and 150 sets of the etchings printed in black only. The remarque, below the main image, is a feeding bottle. The sheet is browned along the edges to a maximum of 10mm, nowhere near the illustration which is in excellent condition and would frame up beautifully. Condition: See description.
