Description: CAMILLE PISSARRO
La Sarcleuse.

Drypoint printed in dark brown on cream laid paper, 1887-88. 163x110 mm; 6 1/2x4 3/8 inches, full margins. Second state (of 2). One of approximately only 15 lifetime impressions in this state, there was only one proof impression in the first state. Signed, titled and inscribed "no. 8" and "imprimé par F. Jacque, épreuve d'artiste" in pencil, lower margin. A superb, strong impression of this extremely scarce print, with crisp, partially inky plate edges.

This is one of only several etchings not printed by Pissarro himself; he assiduously did most of his own intalgio printing. This plate was given by the artist to another printer, F. Jacques, as noted on a dozen or so impressions in the second state.

The kneeling woman in this print, weeding in a field, appears in a brush and ink and wash drawing by Pissarro, now at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Delteil 72.
