  Rodolphe Piguet   (1840-1915; Swiss)

  BALLERINAS PLAYING CARDS, ca. 1892. Etching after a painting by Pierre Carrier-Belleuse. Signed in pencil by both painter and etcher. Published by Klackner, with a remarque of a woman in a large hat, and printed on vellum. The margins are smudged, and vellum is very hard to clean, but with good matting that fosuses attention on the main subject, this is a striking work.
  Etching, image, 10 3/4 x 14 3/4 inches. $600.
