"Petit cabinet de toilette." Original drypoint (cancelled plate)

1879-80. Adhémar & Cachin 48. Lightly cancelled plate. Image: 12 x 7.9 cm / 4-5/8 x 3-1/8 in. Paper: cream-colored stiff paper 32.4 x 24.7 cm / 12-3/4 x 9-3/4 in. Degas frequently cancelled his original copper plates after printing a few proofs. This image is especially rare. The current owner received it from a German friend who escaped from a concentration camp during WWII and worked with the US forces in Germany as a translator during the Occupation. She believes he brought this print home at that time. It suffered from bad framing but has undergone excellent conservation by Karen Zukor of Oakland, California. The black border in the scan is background, not a frame. **Free domestic or international shipping with direct order. Item #100654
