Giovanni FATTORI - UN PONTE SULL'AFFRICO (A Bridge on the Affrico Torrent)

The print has the characteristics of the impressions pulled by Fattori himself, or under his direct guidance, with his small hand press. These impressions were printed on various types of paper, often recovered by chance, easily recognizable by the narrow margins and sometimes used to wrap the plates and recognize them (as it is the case for the present impression). Several examples are in the Franconi collection. See: Andrea Baboni, 'Le incisioni di Giovanni Fattori nella collezione Franconi', Florence, 1987; nos. 4, 26, 28, 64, 74, 78 and 85. Baboni generally dated these impressions c. 1900.
A very good impression, just with a few unevenly inked areas, printed in black ink on light brown, rough, laid paper. Paper lightly and evenly discoloured in correspondence of part of the printed area, traces of blue chalk.
A very similar impression of another etching by Fattori, on similar paper and with similar traces of folds due to the wrapping of the plate, is in the collection of the British Museum: 2001,0930.18.
