A fine impression on cream laid paper. This is a strong impression of an increasingly uncommon print by Pierre Auguste Renoir.

Although the etching was created around 1908, it was not published until 1914. It was included in the second edition of the book Die Impressionism by Theodore Duret. The book was published by Bruno Cassirer in Berlin.

There was also a second printing of 200 impressions on Japon paper in 1920 for the fourth edition of Die Impressionism by Theodore Duret. This fourth edition of this book was also published by Bruno Cassirer in Berlin.

There is only one state of this etching. There were no later restrikes.
