Description
The subject of this drypoint was model Jeanne-Marie Fourmanoir. The first state was printed by Porcaboeuf and issued by Rouartin 1904 in an edition of about 25. The plate was then cancelled by piercing the two circles in the edges of the plate, as seen in this impression. The "cancelled" print was republished in 1910 by Duret and later by Vollard.
