[Fishing a Fair Maiden.]
Etching. 298 x 210mm. 11¾ x 8¼".
Jules Arnand Hanriot (1853-1930) was a French artist famous for female nudes such as this. A young man fishing on the river bank, looks most surprised when his catch is a nude female "hooked" on her ample buttocks. She clings to the low tree branches as he continues to reel her in.
