Description

The catalogue raisonné states about this image: "One print was pulled from the first two states. Three states were executed, with seven "epreuve d'essai" (numbered 1/7 to 7/7). Most of the impressions printed from the third state were printed on old paper. The plate was crossed, and one print pulled, in November, 1932."

Caroline and Frank Armington, who met in Paris in 1900, were part of the Paris art community in the 20s and 30s and traveled and exhibited extensively throughout Europe, while maintaining a residence in Paris.

This composition features the booksellers along the Seine, these on th Quai Malaquais, located in the 6th district of Paris, between the quays Conti and Voltaire. Customers browse through the used books and prints in the booths, looking for something they just have to have or an undiscovered treasure.
