ERNESTO BAZZARO (Milan 1859 - 1937) NUDE BOY SEATED
Etching, Mezzetti 24. A working proof, printed on thick and absorbent wove paper. Signed in the plate 'Bazzaro E'. On the verso another, unevenly inked, impression. Minor defects. To the platemark 181 x 158 mm, the entire sheet measuring 295 x 237 mm.
Amalia Mezzetti described three states for this print, and I have personally seen just the final state. According my knowledge this proof is an intermediate state between Mezzetti's second state and the final one. I call it 'intermediate B'. Two other intermediate states between the second and the final are presented here on my website ('intermediate A', 'intermediate C').
