Mme. Helleu by the Fireplace

Circa 1895.


This exquisite drypoint by Paul Cesar Helleu of his wife was created circa 1895.

The prints were created for his own pleasure and never intended for a large public edition. This drypoint is a scene of the drawing room in Helleu's home. The bust on the mantel is of Queen Marie-Antoinette. Signed with red pencil "Helleu" in lower left just under printed image. Partial watermark can be seen in paper at right margin paper edge.
