La Tour de l'Horloge (The Clock Tower) - CHARLES MERYON - etching with engraving

French, (1821-1868)

Etching with engraving, 1852 and later, Schneiderman 23 (iv/X), Delteil-Wright iv/X); edition unknown. 10 1/4 x 7 1/4 in. Initialed in the plate, upper right. This is a superb, luminous impression on cream laid paper with the watermark "D & C BLAUW." The margins are good measuring about 3/4" on all sides. The condition is fine other than for a tiny, imperceptible pinhole/paper imperfection in the smoke between the clock tower and the first turret. This stellar impression is from the collection of Sir Francis Seymour Haden (Lugt 3938) with his pencil initials on front of the sheet, lower right. Delteil-Wright notes that Haden purchased a fifth state impression from Del√Ętre for the Victoria & Albert Museum in December, 1860.      SOLD
