Etching of a lady removing her slipper, 6" by 7 3/4" inside the mat (13 1/2" by 14 1/2" framed), pencil signed at lower right margin by the noted French twentieth century master ANDRE DUNOYER DE SEGONZAC (1884-1974). This is a beautifully executed work , showing the artist's skill in draftsmanship and the graphic arts. Like many of his works, this image is suggestively erotic in nature. Dunoyer de Segonzac was exhibiting at the Salon d'Automne and the Salon des Independants by 1910, and his work was included in the Armory Show of 1913. After World War I service he took up etching in 1919, and he proved to be very competent in and comfortable with that medium, creating something on the order of 1,600 plates. The artist's watercolors, often of still life in interiors, have often fetched over $50,000 at major auctions. This print has some condition issues, namely overall browning consistent with age, some brownish foxing discolorations, especially at top left margin and bottom margin, and at lower left (see final image), some old moisture or foreign matter, I think, having caused some paper disturbance. I do not know the title but am researching it. Allow for reflections in some images.
