Description: CAMILLE PISSARRO
Baigneuse aux oies.

Etching and drypoint printed in black on antique, vergé vedâtre laid paper, 1895. 127x179 mm; 5 1/8x7 1/8 inches, full margins. Thirteenth state (of 16). The unique impression in this state, one of approximately only 20 lifetime impressions in all sixteen states combined. Inscribed "8e état no. 2" and titled in pencil, lower margin. A brilliant, richly-inked, proof-like impression of this scarce etching, with inky plate edges and faint finger prints in the margins.

While this is the most intensely-labored version, through sixteen states, Pissarro revisited this subject of a nude bather and geese in another etching--with some impressions printed in colors (see following lot)--from circa 1895 (albeit with two bathers) as well as in lithographs from around 1896 and 1897 (Delteil 119, 161 and 180 respectively). Each of these relate to a drawing of the subject in sepia ink and wash now in the British Museum, London (donated by the artist's son Lucien). Delteil 115.
