Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000
Woodcut on China paper, 1911. 251x206 mm; 10 1/8x8 1/8 inches, full margins. Artist's proof, aside from the edition of 122 (which was unsigned). Signed, dated "1916" and dedicated in pencil, lower margin. A very good impression of this scarce prook.
The dedicatee, Gabrielle Réval (1870-1938), a French writer and feminist, was the wife of the poet Fernand Fleuret, a close friend of Dufy.
