Lionello BALESTRIERI
Date
circa 1902
Description

Color aquatint on laid paper, mounted on Japan.
Edition unknown, but certainly small, if any was issued at all.
We have never encountered another impression of this print.
This composition is a detail, which was also painted as such in a study for a larger painting. The final composition won Balestrieri acclaim at the 1900 Paris Exposition and in Venice the year after. This painting now hangs in the Museo Revoltella, Trieste, Italy.
Plate size: 11 7/8 x 17 7/8 inches.
Signed in pencil.
