Original Lithograph, circa 1925, on Chine Volant paper, in Black & white, signed by the artist in pencil

Condition:  In good condition but with minor foxing

Edition: A proof outside an edition of unknown size (probably 100 or less)

Note: Dufy painted a large Oil on Canvas in 1923 which was sold at Sothebys in 2008. Le bal chez l'amiral depicts an elegant gala honouring a high-ranking naval officer.

Provenance: The stock of Henri M Petiet, Paris. The dealers stamp  H.M.P in an oval, verso. Petiet was one of the most famous art dealers of Paris in the post war era. He bought the stock of Vollard on that dealers untimely death and proceeded to become one of the leading print dealers in Paris. The fact that our piece emanates from this source gives authenticity and prominence to it.
