Description
Pascin was a prolific printmaker but many consider his greatest works be the 5 color etchings he did for Charles Perrault's text for 'Cinderella' in 1929. This image depicts Cinderella about to slip her foot into the glass slipper. This image is also used on the dust jacket of Pascin's catalogue raisonnĂ©, volume III. The total edition included 5 prints on Japon Imperial, numbered A-E; 7 proofs on Japon Nacre, numbered I-VII; 33 proofs on Van Gelder, 1-33; 33 proofs on velin d'Arches, numbered 34-66; plus 10 proofs for the publisher, totalling 88. There is also an edition, printed in black and white, of the cancelled plate that was published by the Collector's Guild in New York, after the artist's death.
