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 good condition for age with rippling to the paper which is most noticeable in raking light and on the reverse (see photo opposite), but we think this print will frame up well.
A 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.
