Etching, 1906, Zigrosser 13 (ii/II), edition 30. 5 15/16 x 7 1/2 in. Signed and dated in the plate. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a superb impression of this lovely, rare work. The paper is a cream Japanese and the margins are full. The condition is excellent. Like Whistler and his Amsterdam etchings, Marin appreciated the uniqueness of every impression and applied the ink in such a dramatic way that no two impressions are exactly the same. We sold a rare first state of this print a couple of years ago and the inking was substantially different than this one. Other impressions are found at Colby College, The Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago.
