Adolphe Beaufrere (1876-1960), [Mountain and Sea], soft ground etching, c. 1910, signed in pencil lower right margin and with the artist’s red stamp lower right. Not in Morane. In very good condition, printed on a cream/tan card, with small (1/4″) margins all around, 105 x 149 mm, 4 1/4 x 5 7/8 inches.

Provenance: acquired directly from Jean-Noel Beaufrere, the artist’s son.

A fine impression of this most unusual modernist image, printed with plate tone.

This is an exceedingly rare proof impression, quite possibly unique.
