Copper-plate etching printed in colors with marginal remarks in color lithograph, a fine, fresh impression of the only known state of this rare work, printed on BFK Rives paper, to the edges, pencil-signed and numbered by the artist, pulled in an edition of 75 examples (there were also X artist proofs and 16 proofs "d'essai" annotated A to P with large margins,) printed by Jean Clerte and P.A. in Bougival, published by La Hune, Paris and Roten, Baltimore, Maryland, in fine condition, unframed.

Riviere, Yves. Pierre Alechinsky: Les estampes de 1946 a 1972. 1973, Paris, Yves Riviere, p.135, no.342, illustrated in color (another example.)

Notes:

Riviere notes that this print was pulled in an edition of 65 plus proofs - this is incorrect, as the numbered edition was 75.
