Stanley HAYTER Jeux d'Eau  (1953)
Original copper plate engraving and soft-ground etching with stencil colouring on handmade, oatmeal Lauriet paper. Signed SW Hayter in pencil, dated 1953, and numbered from the limited edition of 200. Printed by the artist at Atelier 17 and published by L'Oeuvre Gravée, Zurich. Image Size: 382 x 320mm. Referenced in Black & Moorehead The Prints of Stanley William Hayter: A Complete Catalogue, 208
In very good condition for age. Very slight discolouration to sheet edges and a tiny foxing mark (could be part of the handmade paper), a faint line of black ink in the right hand margin probably done at time of printing. An extremely fine, bright and bold impression with strong colours (often faded on other copies we've seen). There were various 'states' of printing so colours varied slightly throughout the edition, this being one of the more colourful results. A rare and highly desirable signed Stanley William Hayter etching
