Camille Pissarro (1830-1903), Grand-mere (effet de lumiere), etching and drypoint, 1889, signed in pencil lower right, titled lower left, inscribed “No 3 – 2e etat” lower left in pencil. Delteil 80, second state (of 7). In good condition (slight rubbing in lower right margin at the signature), the full sheet, 6 5/8 x 10 1/4, the sheet 10 5/8 x 16 inches.

Printed in black on a tan/ivory moderate weight Japan wove paper.

A fine rich mpression of this very rare print, with substantial burr from the drypoint work.

Only one impression is known of the first state; this is one of three or four known of the second state. This state is before additional work on the face of the woman, additional lines delineating furniture and curtains, and aquatint work resulting in the overall greying of the appearance of the print. The print was not editioned; about nine impressions were made of states one through six, and another 6 in the seventh state (there were also 18 posthumous impressions made, easily identifiable by their uniform worn look, and stamped signature and number.)

The subject is the mother of the artist.

The Artist

Camille Pissarro

Born in 1830, Camille Pissarro was a Danish-French impressionist painter and later in his life, (at the age of 54) neo-impressionism. He made important contributions to both the impressionism and post-impressionism movements. He did not have any formal qualifications in art. His father would have preferred him to continue working in his job as a cargo clerk but Pissarro took every opportunity, including breaks from work, to practice drawing.
