This is a very fine 1920s drypoint etching by the celebrated British printmaker, Stanley Anderson.
It is an original fine art etching and drypoint- and is pencil signed in the margin below the image. It is entitled ‘La Lieutenance, Honfleur’.
Honfleur is a small port in Normandy, near the mouth of the River Seine. The masts and sails of the ships to the left of the picture indicate the river is on the other side of the low wall. There is a group of people close to the wall; they appear to be unloading fish from the boats.
The picture is dominated by the large, grand-looking building to the center-right of the image. This is the 18th-century lieutenancy building (La Lieutenance) which stands at the entrance to the old harbour. It is the former home of the Governor of Honfleur.
One of the sides of the building was an old gate leading into the ancient town and was once part of the town’s fortifications.
This fine print comes from a very small edition of only 60 proof impressions.
The image measures 19.5 x 37 cm.
It is beautifully presented with a fresh window mount - it is not framed - but can easily be popped into your local framer and you can select a frame of your choice.
It is simply a really beautiful impression with rich velvety drypoint tones and no condition issues.
