Roussel, Theodore (1847-1926), 'Pierrot en Pied, Portrait of Lady A.C, Etching, 1888

'Pierrot en Pied, Portrait of Lady A.C, Etching, 1888


Trimmed to the platemark by the artist. Signed in pencil in the artist's tab lower middle margin.

One of several impressions printed in red-brown ink.

This full length portrait of Lady Archibald Campbell in costume is related to two other prints by Roussel (No.9 and No.10) and a large pastel entitled 'Ma Fonction est d'etre Blanc'. Its scale and the manipulation of ink or plate tone - on the unetched background in many impressions recall Whistler's drypoint portraits and his printing technique of the 1880s.
