MULLER, Alfredo (1869-1939):

Devant la rampe ,

Etching and drypoint, 1897. Koehl E11. Signed in pencil, edition size unknown. Colour impressions are also found.

A fine impression printed on textured laid paper with Auvergne watermark, wide margins. Very pale light-burn. 396 x 299mm.

The love of the music hall permeates the art of the fin-de-si├Ęcle. Like Degas and Toulouse-Lautrec, Muller dramatizes his figure with the new lighting that had changed the look of the theatre.
