Plate signed etching, 13" by 10 1/4" inside the mat, the sheet 16" by 13 3/4", titled "Rue de la Glaciere", 1937, by the famous and important French modern artist MAURICE de VLAMINCK (1876-1958). The original edition is given as 400 or 500 examples; later restrikes might exist. I do not know if this might be one of them. The paper is very thin and delicate and appears ribbed as would laid style paper. I do not see any watermarks. Vlaminck is known as a Fauvist and later simply as an expressionist. At auctions, Vlaminck's works in oil bring from the low hundreds of thousands of dollars to the low millions. He was a formidable presence in the French art scene during the first half of the twentieth century, a contemporary of Derain, Matisse, Cezanne and other giants. CONDITION: Very clean, some light mat toning near the edges. See the net for much more on this major artist. .
