François Gromaire notes that, although this work is numbered as an edition of thirty, only the first twenty of the edition were printed, signed and numbered over Gromaire’s lifetime. This is thus one of Gromaire’s rarest graphic works.
This etching appears to be a study for Gromaire’s painting of this same year L’Automobiliste, ref. Gromaire/Chibret-Plaussu.
