About

A superb trial proof impression, showing touches of burr, of Breeskin?€™s sixth state of seven of this extremely rare drypoint, printed after the additional shading making the right cheekbone more pronounced, but before the strengthening of the diagonal lines on the right sleeve, apart from the edition of only 25 in the seventh and final state, annotated "epreuve d?€™essai" by hand in pencil in the margin also lower right. One of the twelve drypoint subjects, each published in an edition of 25, exhibited in November-December, 1893, in the Exposition de Tableaux, Pastels, et Gravures de Mary Cassatt at the Galerie Durand-Ruel, Paris, the large, comprehensive exhibition of the artist?€™s paintings, pastels, drawings, and prints.
