Chez le Patissier

Jean-Emile Laboureur (1877-1943), Chez le Patissier, engraving, etching and roulette, 1924, signed in pencil lower right. Reference: Laboureur 278, third state (of 3), from the total printing of about 138 impressions in all states. In excellent condition, with full margins, 5 1/2 x 4 5/8, the sheet 11 x 8 3/4 inches.

A fine impression, printed on a cream wove paper.

A wonderful example of Laboureur’s cubist work in engraving, with the elongated Mannerist figures so characteristic of his work in this period.

This is the patisserie Mangin, rue du Havre, in Paris.
