Edgar Chahine

Edgar Chahine; 1874-1947, probably born in Vienna, to Armenian parents, and lived in Constantinople. He studied at the Accademia de Belle Arti under Paoletti in Venice and in 1895 he went to Paris to study.  He began making intaglio prints in the 1890's and would later use etching, drypoint and aquatint often mixing media to create his desired effect.  He is well known for his delicate landscapes and seascapes which are often reminiscent of the work of Whistler. Chahines work is rare as a fire and a flood in his studio towards the end of his life destroyed much of his works.

This etching is bright, unfaded and crisp with excellent detail and dark brown intaglio ink lines, the image size measuring approximately  18 cms. x 29 cms. (7¼ x 11½ ins.)  within a fine but evident platemark and impression on a laid paper sheet size of 23 cms. x 33 cms. (9 x 13 ins.) with deckle edges.

Signed, dated and titled in the image.

Unframed and unmounted, blank on the reverse, the condition of the image and sheet is good with handling marks condusive with age.
