More About this Item


Description: Charles Meryon (1821-1868) French artist, who worked almost entirely in etching, as he suffered from color-blindness. He is generally recognised as the most significant etcher of 19th century France. He also suffered from mental illness, dying in an asylum. His most famous work is a series of views of Paris. Offered here is a photogravure 1926 of his etching [1865]. These superb photogravures, there were 20 printed in 1926, are often sold as etchings. You see them all the time offered at around $400 to $800 each. The sellers, obviously are not aware of what they are offering. The original 1865 etching retailed at $1500. Plate size approx. 6-1/2 x 5-1/2" plus wide clean margins. A superb example of the original.
