Le Petit Hotel de Ville



Jean-Emile Laboureur (1877-1943), Le Petit Hotel de Ville, 1922, signed in pencil lower left, numbered lower right, and annotated “imp.” Reference: Laboureur 244, first state (of 2), from the group of 8 in this state (47 in all). In generally good condition apart from streaks of light staining (most visible in the margins), printed on a wove Arches paper (with the watermark), with margins, 5 x 4 1/4, the sheet 10 1/2 x 8 3/4 inches.

A fine impression; a good example of Laboureur’s exacting work in engraving, working in a cubist idiom

This is the city hall of Roche-La Roche-Bernard, a commune in the Morbihan department of Brittany in north-western France.
