Andre Brasilier - L' Etang


 Original Lithograph, 1977, on Arches (watermarked) paper, signed by the artist in pencil

Note: This artist, much collected by the Japanese, is commonly connected with two major themes: horses and women with flowers. This work depicts a tranquil image of a young woman – looking out pensively across the water at sunset.
