Pair of Louis Icart Etchings (1)*
Pair of framed and glazed aquatint and dry-point etchings by Louis Icart each depicting a young woman street trader, one selling oranges and the other caged birds.
Both pictures are full of atmosphere and beautifully composed, as is the case with the vast majority of Icarts work, with the two woman exuding an air of ‘joie de vivre’ as they sit waiting for their customers.
Signed in pencil and dated 1929, both are impressed with the usual windmill logo confirming their authenticity.
Interestingly the picture of the bird seller has a pencil written dedication at the bottom from Icart to a certain Mr. Olivaux.
