Delâtre, rue Saint-Jacques, 363, Paris," appears to the left of the printed verse, "Paris, Publié par A CADART & LUQUET, Editeurs, 79 Rue Richelieu" appears in the lower right, just below the image. The Cadart & Luquet blindstamp is also present in the lower margin, center. Number "67" appears in the upper right which refers to this as Plate 67 of Eaux-fortes modernes, 2nd year, 2nd issue. (The second printing lacks the the words"Ed.Manet sculpt.") The subject of this lovely print is Lola Melea who was a principal dancer with the Royal Ballet of Madrid. The Ballet appeared in Paris in 1862 at the Hippodrome theatre and Manet asked the dance troupe to pose for him. He also executed an oil painting of the same subject as well as a lithographic sheet music cover. The painting is now in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.
