Roussel, Theodore (1847-1926), 'Pierrot en Pied, Portrait of Lady A.C, Etching, 1888

'Pierrot en Pied, Portrait of Lady A.C, Etching, 1888

£500.00

Trimmed to the platemark by the artist.

One of several impressions printed in blue-green ink.

This full length portrait of Lady Archibald Campbell in costume is related to two other prints by Roussel (No.9 and No.10) and a large pastel entitled 'Ma Fonction est d'etre Blanc'. Its scale and the manipulation of ink or plate tone - on the unetched background in many impressions recall Whistler's drypoint portraits and his printing technique of the 1880s.
