Print

Les Pecheurs
1874-1947, French

This is a very rare original artist proof etching by French artist Edgar Chahine. The image size is 8 5/8 x 12 1/2 inches, c. 1907, pencil signed and inscribed. Chahine studied at the Academia Di Belle Arti in Venice and then at the Academy Julien in Paris. He was a very well respected artist of the ‘Belle Epoch’ era, winning many awards and honors for his work, including a gold medal at the Paris Salon. However his prints and paintings are hard to find as many of them were destroyed in a fire at his studio in 1926 or in a later flood in 1942.
