Drypoint etching print "Chattes" (Cats) published in Paris in the year 1909 by Gustave Pellet, 8 3/4" by 12 1/4" inside the inner fillet, 17 3/4" by 21 3/4" as nicely framed, numbered in pencil 38/50 (and faint red cypher stamp) at lower right margin, and pencil signed by the artist at lower center right margin. There is a crease in each lower corner that I believe likely dates to the time of printing, and there are a few foxing spots, but the overall appearance is excellent. I have not examined the work out of the frame. Legrand was an important artist of the "Belle Epoque" in Paris, specializing in etchings of the women of Paris, from the wealthy elite to prostitutes and dancers. He studied with Felicien Rops, and his work sometimes reflects the dark and erotic imagery of that artist. According to records, an example of this scarce print sold in New York at auction in 2007 (at the height of the art market) for over $3,000. Allow for reflections in a few images.
