LUIGI CONCONI (Milan 1852 - 1917) EBBREZZA
Etching, 1888; a fine impression of the second state of two, in black ink, richly and skillfully printed working on the surface tone (acquaforte monotipata), on thick wove white paper. Signed 'Conconi' in the film of ink left in the plate in wiping (the smoke of the cigarette). With large margins, minor faults, generally in very good condition. To the platemark 235 x 497 mm, the entire sheet measuring 427 x 640 mm. See M. Bianchi, G. Ginex, 'Luigi Conconi incisore', Milan, 1994; cat. no. 24. This is, by sure, the most sought-after print by Conconi.
To appreciate the strong differences between two impressions of an 'acquaforte monotipata' you can see here the two different impressions showed on my web-site compared 'vis à vis'.
