Rue de Géricault à Rouen

Camille Pissarro (1830-1903), Rue de Géricault à Rouen, lithograph, 1896, signed in blue pencil lower right margin,  titled center, and inscribed “Ep defi No 11” left [also signed in the plate in reverse].  Reference: Delteil 173, only state, from the group of about 21 impressions, a few of which were not signed. There were no posthumous impressions, and the cancelled plate is in the Bibliotheque Nationale.  In good condition apart from spots of staining or foxing in margins, with margins, 7 1/4 x 5 1/2, the sheet 12 7/8 x 9 3/4 inches.

A fine impression, printed on green-Ingres paper affixed to a white wove.

Pissarro also made an etching of this section of Rue de Géricault (Delteil 120); the view is generally similar to the lithograph but is perhaps more realistic, less atmospheric than the lithographic version.
