Berthe Morisot: The Drawing Lesson Framed Print - $195 (Asheville)

GIFT FOR a MOM. Framed Etching by Berthe Morisot that I have had for over a decade. Worth probably closer to $1000 but I don't have the time and expertise to sell it.

This print (19cm x 14cm) is by and of the famous artist Berthe Morisot teaching her daughter Juliet to draw.

It's the real thing. According to the MET, only LIMITED EDITION etchings were made of this image. No lithographs. So people who claim to have a lithograph must have a poster. The etching plate marks are easy to see on this and not covered by the mat.

The Savageau Gallery provided authentication and museum-quality framing to the Denver Art Museum.

I have had it since I got it from Steven Savageau himself.

No framing to do! It has custom French matting and a gold leafed one-piece frame. At the Savageau Gallery, all antique pieces like this were framed with a museum mounting process. The antique pie crust one-piece Art Nouveau frame is worth a few hundred dollars. The custom gold leaf on dark red tempera is gorgeous.

It is a beautiful ready-to-hang classic piece in top shape.
As you can see in the photos, a print like this went for over $5000 in 2014 at the Swann Gallery.
