Félix Hilaire Buhot (July 9, 1847 - April 26, 1898) was a French painter and illustrator. Among the most original prints made in France during the last quarter of the nineteenth century are those by Félix Buhot. Along with artists like Charles Jacque, Louis Monzies and Felix Bracquemond, he is credited with reviving seventeenth-century etching techniques in late nineteenth-century art.

This finely detailed etching with drypoint is bright and unfaded, with excellent rich black intaglio ink lines, fine detail and drypoint burr.  The image measuring approximately 31 cms. x 19 cms. (12  x 7½  ins.) within a strong platemark and impression on a laid paper sheet size 38 cms. x 27 cms. (15¼ x 10¾ ins.) with full margins and partial makers watermark.

Included is the original exhibition/gallery label.
