Description: CAMILLE PISSARRO
Paysanne bêchant.

Etching printed in dark, brownish black on antique, cream laid paper, 1890. 158x120 mm; 6 1/4x4 3/4 inches, full margins. Sixth state (of 10). The unique impression in this state, one of approximately only 20 lifetime impressions in all ten states combined. Titled and inscribed "6e état no. 1" in pencil, lower margin. A superb, richly-inked impression with warm plate tone and crisp, inky plate edges.

Pissarro made several painted versions of this subject (Pissarro/Snollaerts 677, Paysanne bêchant, 1882; Pissarro/Snollaerts 678, Paysanne bêchant, 1882; Pissarro/Snollaerts 708, Femme bêchant, 1883), all now in private collections. His compositions likely derive from figure representations of peasants bent at work, either gleaning or digging, in Millet's Les Glaneuses, oil, 1857 (Musée d'Orsay, Paris), and Les Becheurs, color pastels, 1866 (Museum of Fine Arts, Boston), both of which he reproduced as etchings too. Delteil 95.
