Le Bal Bullier - JEAN-EMILE LABOUREUR - woodcut

French, (1877-1943)

Woodcut, 1898, Laboureur 579, edition 61. 8 3/4 x 11 3/8 in. Signed in the block, lower left, with his monogram. Signed and numbered in pencil. This is a very fine impression printed on laid paper. The margins are full and the condition is excellent other than for a tiny repaired tear in the lower margin. This stellar woodcut was exhibited at the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts in the spring of 1898. It's illustrated and discussed on page 139 of The Artistic Revival of the Woodcut in France 1850-1900 (1984) by Jacquelyn Baas and Richard Field. Bal Bullier was a ballroom in Paris created by François Bullier in the mid 19th century and it was open until 1940. (Note: the catalogue states an edition of sixty-one impressions but all the numbering we have seen is from an edition of sixty, as here.)      SOLD
