This is a rare early state etching with some added shading in ink by 20th century French artist Louis Legrand. The image size is 12 3/8 x 8 7/8 inches, 1904, cat: Arwas- 209, pencil signed with a notation in French along the bottom edge of the sheet. Louis Legrand was an important artist of 'La Belle Epoch' in France of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He specialized in etchings of the women of Paris, from the wealthy elite to dancers and prostitutes. He studied with Felician Rops, and his work shows the influence of Rops' sometimes dark and erotic imagery.
