PIERRE DUBREUIL | 'LYRES MODERNES'
oil print, signed and titled in pencil on the reverse, circa 1929
7⅞ by 9 in. (20 by 22.9 cm.)
This oil print is in generally excellent condition. It is on double-weight paper with a lush, nearly matte surface and deckle edges. A slight mottling of the surface that is visible upon close examination is likely the result of processing. The lower left corner is softly creased. 'PF19405' and '13' are written in pencil in an unidentified hand on the reverse. There two old hinge remnants on the reverse. This print is accompanied by a Ginny Williams Collection label.
