The Milliner, Reneé Vert
Delteil 13, Adhémar 17, Wittrock 4; a proof of the second state with the text removed. Signed on the stone with the printed monogram. This is a fine impression with probably the full margins. The colors are fresh. The condition is very good apart from four small subtle wrinkles at the corners from earlier hinges, verso. There's a slight crease in the lower right corner just barely affecting the printed area. This is a trial proof aside from the edition of fifty in this state. Wittrock knew of two such impressions as we have here. Renée Vert was also a fashion designer and married to the painter, Joseph Albert. They were good friends of Lautrec.
