More About this Item


Description: CAMILLE PISSARRO
Paysage à Osny près de Pontoise.

Drypoint printed in black on cream laid paper, 1887. 116x155 mm; 4 1/2x6 1/8 inches, full margins. First state (of 2). Edition of 100. Signed and inscribed "no. 53" in pencil, lower margin. Published by André Marty for L'Estampe Originale, Paris, with the blind stamp (Lugt 819, lower left recto). A superb, richly-inked impression of this very scarce print.

This is one of only five intaglio prints by Pissarro that was published during his lifetime. He issued the other 120-plus etchings, aquatints and drypoints he made privately, in very small print runs, frequently of 20 impressions or fewer, in at least several separate working states.

Pissarro created Paysage à Osny près de Pontoise as a pure drypoint in 1887, though it wasn't published in the art journal devoted to original fine art prints, L'Estampe Originale, until 1894. The artist then decided to return to work on the plate, burnishing away much of the heavy shadows in the foreground to create a more textured riverbank and printing a handful of proof impressions for himself (see following lot). Delteil 70.
