Original etching and aquatint by Edgar Degas, printed in black ink on thick wove creme paper. Titled The Laundresses, Degas' work explores space and uses experimental techniques, including a wire brush to create its texture. This work is classic Degas, as it captures women in motion from an unusual perspective. The original copper plate was executed in 1897-80. This is a fine impression of Reed and Shapiro's fourth state after cancellation of the plate. It was printed as part of Ambroise Vollard's 1919 edition of ~150 impressions from Degas' cancelled plates. Framed size: 18-1/4 inches H x 17 inches W (46.3 cm x 43.2 cm). Framed in an ornate, finished-corner gold leaf frame with acid-free, white matte and mounting materials. Completed with a UV-resistant acrylic cover.
