Causerie Villageoise

Jean-Emile Laboureur (1877-1943), Causerie Villageoise (Village Chat), engraving with touches of roulette and etching, 1924, signed in pencil lower left, numbered and inscribed “imp” lower right, titled by the artist lower left margin. Reference: Laboureur 287, fourth state (of 4). In excellent condition, the full sheet, printed on a cream wove BFK Rives paper (with the watermark), 4 3/4 x 5 1/8, the sheet 7 1/2 x 10 inches.

A fine impression; a splended example of Laboureur’s using engraving to render a cubist-influenced composition.
