L’Arrosoir (The Watering)

Jean-Emile Laboureur (1877-1943), L’Arrosoir, etching, 1902, signed and dated (o2) in pencil lower right [also signed and dated in the plate lower left]. Reference: Laboureur 31, second state (of 2), from the edition of about 10 in this state (another 10 in the first state).

A very good impression of this early and rare Laboureur etching. The dating in pencil suggests this was done in ’02; S. Laboureur calls for an “edition” numbered 1-10 in ’03.

The person illustrated is the artist’s father.
