Le Château de Tachy


Drypoint etching by French artist Jacques Beurdeley. Pencil signed and plate signed in the lower right, pencil numbered 58 out of an edition of 60 in the lower left. Plate measures 7 1/4 x 11 1/2 inches on 11 x 14 inch waterproofed laid paper. Sagot blindstamp in the lower right. A very detailed impression with plate toning and a rich drypoint burr. Beurdeley avoided the law career intended for him by his father and studied instead the École des Beaux-Arts under Fernand Cormon. He was later influenced by Paul Huet, Corot, Rousseau, and Camille Pissarro and went on to produce many etchings of the French countryside.
