The Crown (La Tiare) - FELIX BUHOT
Medium: etching, drypoint and aquatint
Etching, drypoint and aquatint, 1888, Bourcard-Goodfriend 173 (iv/IV) 15 5/8 x 12 7/8 in. Signed in pencil and with the artist's large red owl stamp (Lugt 977) in the lower left corner. This is a superb impression rich in tone and contrasts. The paper is a cream Japanese and the margins are probably full. Excellent condition. There's an annotation by Buhot along the bottom of the sheet: Tirage //300 épr.//25 ép. D'artiste//3 ép.sur Japon. Here Buhot depicts the crown offered to pope Léon XIII for his jubilee. It was made by the goldsmith François-Désiré Froment-Meurice who knew Buhot. The artist depicts his son in the foreground.
