Original lithograph in black ink. 1898/99. Absolutely exceptional first proof impression, hand printed direct from the original stone. Before any edition impressions. Hand-printed at the studio of Clot, Paris 1899. Printed at the studio of Clot and inscribed by Clot 1898 as: ‘épreuve d’essai en noir’ – trial proof in black. Exceptionally rare quite possibly unique in this first proof form.

Note: Subsequently (late 1898 – early 1899) this image was transferred to another stone, deliberately reducing the tonal density and a great deal of the detail shading so that it could be used as the background for an edition of 100 impressions with added colours. (See also further note below)
Ref: Stella – Renoir Graphic Work no 31. Delteil 31.
Early Provenance: Auguste Clot, with his pencil inscription.

Outstandingly rich and brilliant trial proof impression with the detail shading work which was erased in the edition impressions. On off-white chine volant paper, as typically used by Clot for proofs. Print in excellent condition; torn outer right margin corner repaired, 65 mm -2 1/2ins – clear of the image. Otherwise full sheet: 565 x 428mm. Image: 322x268mm
