Jean-Emile Laboureur (1877-1943), Portrait, 1917, engraving, signed in pencil lower left and numbered lower right (28/40). Reference: S. Laboureur 170, third state (of 3), from the edition of 40 in this state (54 proofs pulled overall). In excellent condition, 4 3/8 x 3 1/4, the sheet 9 1/2 x 7 1/4 inches.

A fine impression, printed on a cream laid paper.

An excellent example of Laboureurs adoption of a cubist idiom, using engraving lines to accentuate the linear quality of cubism; a small portrait that works splendidly.
