Description
Goeneutte produced a number of etchings in his short life, including apparently two of the Pont Neuf, both done in 1877. The first is smaller in size than this and included aquatint. In the catalogue raisonne by Beraldi neither print is included in the list of 101 works. There are a few mentions of impressions in a few collections but this is a rare print, especially in this state. In later states the plate was trimmed on both the right, left and top, from 10-3/16 x 8-3/16" to 9-9/16 x 6-3/8." Goeneutte trimmed the margins of this impression.
