About

Landscape with Figures is a beautiful engraving, realized by the French painter and engraver Maurice Asselin, datable to the first half of the 20th century. The plate was engraved as etching and drypoint and, inside the matrix, on the lower left, there is the signature “M Asselin”. On the left, outside the matrix in pencil “5/35 M Asselin”. On the lower margin in black pen, there is a long dedication of the artist with greetings and thanks. The state of preservation is very good, except for some stains for a light fungal foxing on the left margin of the paper. Furthermore, the imperfect inking of the matrix slightly stained the margins of the image. Maurice Asselin is famous especially for his female figures, among which numerous nudes, often caught in scenes of maternity, in which he reached rare levels of delicacy, but also for the wonderful landscapes of Brittany, a region of France, to him very dear, where he has often stayed. He also traveled to Italy, in Anticoli-Corrado, a famous town of artists and models in the countryside of the region Lazio, near Rome. After the Italian experience, Asselin also traveled to London, where he exhibited his works in solo shows. The landscape represented in this artwork should be Breton, especially for the majestic Gothic architecture on the background, referring to an unidentified cathedral. This is a beautiful artwork, expressing the style of Impressionist landscapes typical of this famous French painter. This artwork is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any artwork in Italy created over 70 years ago by an artist who has died requires a licence for export regardless of the work’s market price. The shipping may require additional handling days to require the licence according to the final destination of the artwork.
