La Danse a la Compagne (The Dance in the Country) is Renoir's most sought-after etching. It was produced in 1890 using a soft-ground etching process. Signed by the artist using a signature stamp. Framed in acid-free materials and covered in UV resistant acrylic. Listed in the catalogue raisonne of Renoir's graphic works (Stella 2). There are no official records listing the size of the edition but the art dealer community estimates the edition size at 500-700 total impressions. See closeup photos and a more complete description at http://www.jdsmithfineart.com/gallery-of-artists/renoir-menu/renoir-la-danse-compagne-etching. Will include a copy of the out-of-print 1975 Joseph Stella catalogue raisonne (titled The Graphic Work of Renoir) with the piece.
