More About this Item


Description: CAMILLE PISSARRO Rue de l''Épicerie, à Rouen. Drypoint printed in black on cream laid paper, 1886. 170x150 mm; 6 3/4x6 inches, full margins. Second state (of 2). One of approximately only 4 or 5 lifetime impressions printed before steel-facing of the plate in this state, from a total of approximately only 7 lifetime impressions before steel-facing and 8 impressions after steel-facing in both states combined. Van Gelder watermark. Signed, titled and inscribed "no. 3" in pencil, lower margin. A superb, dark impression with richly-inked, velvety burr. We have found only four other lifetime impressions before steel-facing at auction in the past 30 years. This etching shows a cropped, more close-up view as seen also in Pissarro''s later oil on canvas, Lumière du soleil, après midi, la rue de L''Epicerie, à Rouen, 1898 (Pissarro/Snollaerts 1223). Pissarro painted this view four times, with each canvas capturing the different effects of sunlight on the city center (the version at the Metropolitan Museum of Art also shows the city''s Friday market in progress). On August 19, 1898, Pissarro wrote to his son Lucien, "Yesterday I found an excellent place from which I can paint the rue de L''Épicerie and even the market, a really interesting one, which takes place every Friday." The view is looking away from the Seine, up the rue de l''Épicerie toward the Cathédral Notre-Dame de Rouen. Delteil 64.
