Mary Cassatt
The Banjo Lesson, 1894
multi-plate color drypoint and soft ground etching
11 1/2 x 9 3/16"

Very good condition, save for small pinhole in left margin plate edge. Wonderful original printed color with hand embellishments.

Signed in pencil lower right. Fourth state of four. Printed from two plates from Mathews and Shapiro. It is worth noting the attention that Cassatt lavished on this subject: The Boston Museum’s preparatory study in pastel, the grand finished pastel and a counterproof.
